You will need to contact either a reseller partner or VMware sales directly as pricing varies on a number of factors.
If you want ballpark pricing then I would advise contacting sales team(s) for whichever is your preferred/intended vendor with regard to vSAN ReadyNodes or other package solutions such as VxRail.
If you intend to build it yourself then pricing for servers that support the versions of ESXi you are using + controllers,cache and capacity-tier drives supported for vSAN + licensing from VMware is what you will need.
Pricing can vary massively depending on more specific requirements (e.g. a 2TB per node Hybrid vs a 20TB per node All-NVMe) licensing levels required for the features needed (e.g. vSAN Standard vs Enterprise).
New pricelist comes 2 days ago...
- You can buy single vSAN CPU Lics as aditional to your vSphere lics
- You can buy special vSAN HCI Lic which is vSAN + Enterprise Plus
- Dont forget vCenter if you havent one already
If you buy vSAN it always needs Production SnS (Basic ist not allowed/available).
- vxRail comes always with vCenter half the ways. For the CPU lics you can bring your own or buy it with the Appiances.
4 server each 8 CPUs? Which Vendor offers 8 socket Hosts for x86 or do you mean 4 VMs with up to 8 vCPU each?
"If you buy vSAN it always needs Production SnS (Basic ist not allowed/available)."
Just some clarification on this point (in case someone reading thinks they can't call us ): we no longer offer Basic support for vSAN on new clusters or renewals but we still support existing Basic customers.
Recently I was comparing pricing of VMware vSAN and StarWind VSAN. It appeared that the latter was more cost effective, as it is licensed on the per server basis, as opposed to per-client licensing of VMware vSAN. For example, 10-node cluster storage on 3 nodes and 10 compute: StarWind charges for 3 nodes, while VMware will charge for 10.
