Hello olicata,

vSAN compatibility requires only certification of the cache-tier SSDs, capacity-tier HDDs/SSDs and the controller used for the disk-groups:

All these 3 relevant components are certified for use (in all released versions of vSAN) in similar Ready-Nodes offered by Cisco:

Here are the entries on the vSAN HCL for these:

UCS-SD480G12S3-EP:

https://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/detail.php?deviceCategory=ssd&productid=40418&vsanrnc...

UCS-HD2T7K12G:

https://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/detail.php?deviceCategory=hdd&productid=40183&vsanrnc...

UCSC-MRAID12G

https://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/detail.php?deviceCategory=vsanio&productid=39770&vsan...

I can't find an identical ReadyNode matching for what you posted but has same drive models and controller as this Ready-Node (but in a C240 model instead of a C220):

https://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/detail.php?deviceCategory=vsan&productid=41604&device...

One thing that I will point out that looks amiss there is that there are 20x HDDs but only 2x SSDs - the max capacity-tier per disk-group in vSAN is 7 so only a maximum of 14 of these HDDs could be used to make disk-groups unless another SSD was available (and this may not be possible to add due to slots without replacing a HDD).

Hope this helps.
