External (vSAN Certified)
VMware vSAN does not provide any file serving capabilities of its own.

Therefore it relies on Windows guest VMs (SMB) and/or Linux guest VMs (NFS) to provide file services on top of vSAN. These file services can be made highly available by using clustering techniques.

Another alternative is to use virtual storage appliances from a third-party to host file services on top of vSAN. The following 3rd party File Services partner products are certified with vSAN 6.7:
- Cohesity DataPlatform 6.1
- Dell EMC Unity VSA 4.4
- NetApp ONTAP Select vNAS 9.5
- Nexenta NexentaStor VSA 5.1.2 and 5.2.0
