Hello,

I can find neither of those devices on the vSAN HCL, can you provide the part number or Product ID to be sure?

You can check what is on the vSAN HCL using the following steps:

Go to this webpage - vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php?deviceCategory=vsan

Click "Build Your Own based on Certified Components"

In "Search for" Select SSD

Enter any other specifics such as Vendor(Partners), Tier, Device Type etc.
