Why are organizations using SoftNAS on VMware?

SoftNAS complements VMware virtual SAN (VSA) with an extensive NAS feature set, combined with the unified storage access via NFS, CIFS/SMB, with Active Directory integration. SoftNAS extends the VMware environment to include highly durable Amazon S3 cloud storage, with up to 16 petabytes of secure off-site cloud storage.

SoftNAS runs as a virtual appliance on VMware ESX and the SoftNAS VM is allocated clustered storage from VSAN. Storage volumes are allocated from storage pools and shared as NFS exports and VIDS/SMD shared. Integration with Active Directory provides authentication and authorization features.
