VMware releases VSAN Beta refresh update

VMware has released an update for Virtual SAN (VSAN) beta. The software is currently available as a public beta and can be downloaded by anyone. The general availability of VSAN is not made public at the moment. Also pricing and which vSphere 5.5 editions it will support is unknown.

Updated in this Refresh are:
