VMware Expands VSAN supported Controller list

VMware has a 1.0 supported controller list that is starting to shape up. Considering Cisco uses the LSI, this gives us 3 solid vendors to choose from from Day one. Also, AHCI controller support is good as there was previously a nasty bug that caused data loss with them. Hoping for PEX to give us a street date (generally there is a release within a week or two of PEX, so I’m hoping March).
