What is StoneFly Virtual SAN (vSAN)

StoneFly virtual SAN or vSAN solution is a storage hypervisor that virtualizes storage resources and enables users to effectively leverage storage capacities for virtual block mode storage.

WIth support for VMware, Hyper-V, KVM and Citrix (or XenServer) hypervisors, the vSAN solution recognizes iSCSI and Fibre Channel (FC) protocols making it compatible with most mainstream servers and purpose-built HCI appliances.

StoneFly vSAN solution is also the only virtual SAN in the market that supports multiple hypervisors and clouds like Azure, AWS, etc.
