I’m looking to setup a lab environment for my team, and wanting to use vSAN. I’m using hosts that were decommed from another project. Each host is as folows:
Dell PowerEdge R720xd
12x 600GB 15k SAS HDD
2x 300GB 10k SAS
2x Xeon E5-2670v2
8x 16GB RDIMM, 1866MT/s
Intel Ethernet X540 DP 10Gb BT + I350 1Gb BT DP – 2x 10Gbps 2x 1Gbps
Intel X520 DP 10Gb DA/SFP+
Can this be used to create a vSAN environment? Do I need to swap out the 2x 300SAS and buy 2x SSD? Will the X520 require FC, and if so, can vSAN run over FC?
Pretty new to designing vSAN, so want to ask this of anyone on here who knows the product well.
All help is greatly appreciated!
