Hi baber​,

Yes you can or rather should be able to. There is a 3-node minimum but you can run a 2-node vSAN with witness appliance. Doesnt give you a great tolerance to failure but would be okay for a lab.

Kind regards.

Hi baber​,

A minimum of 4 nodes I would say. This would allow for a FTT of 1 plus you could have a host in maintenance mode and still be assured of your availability.

The rest comes down to space and IO requirements, licensing considerations and the like Smiley Happy

Kind regards.
