Is there somebody that has knowkedge about «virtual SAN» software that underlies sDOT in ONTAP Select?
I don't think that NetApp has written something proprietary and the knowledge of a fine performing technology (i.e. StratoScale, IOScale, Starwind...) could be a strong point.
Or maybe is VSAN from VMware? In the FAQ I've read that the RC1 support VMware as hypervisor. What they mean? That I can run VMware on Select or that VMware ESXi is the hypervisor where sDOT runs?
Looking at this schema I should think that VSAN is below.

No sorry. My question is wrong. I've just read the architecture guide and there's no virtual san below.
Just a DAS with RAID and VMFS as datastore. On this vmdk for Ontap Select...

Have a read through TR-4517: ONTAP Select Product Architecture and Best Practices
Here's the datasheet:
And the product documentation:
