I have started vSAN installation on my workstation. At least one flash/SSD device for the cache tier for hosts contributing storage to vSAN datastore, whether hybrid or all-flash. We can make non-ssd disk to ssd by selecting disk as NVMe in workstation. NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) is an interface protocol built especially for Solid State Drives (SSDs). NVMe works with PCI Express (PCIe) to transfer data to and from SSDs.

Please check below screenshot from vCenter, it shows as SSD.

Let’s create vSAN network, vSAN Cluster and disk groups–Working on it. We will add more topics like vsan Stretched cluster, Witness host etc.
