Course Details

Overview

In this three-day course, you will focus on deploying and managing a software-defined storage solution with VMware vSAN™ 6.6. You will learn how vSAN functions as an important component in the VMware software-defined data center. You will gain practical experience with vSAN concepts through the completion of hands-on lab exercises.

 

This course is also available in an On Demand format. For more information, select this link: VMware vSAN: Deploy and Manage [V6.6] – On Demand.

Pre-Requisites

This course requires completion of one of the following prerequisites:
•  Storage administration experience on block or file storage devices
•  Understanding of concepts presented in the VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.5] course

 

Experience working at the command line is helpful.

 

The course material presumes that a student can perform the following tasks with no assistance or guidance before enrolling in this course:
•  Use VMware vSphere® Web Client
•  Create and manage VMware vCenter Server® objects, such as data centers, clusters, hosts, and virtual
machines
•  Create and modify a standard switch
•  Connect a VMware ESXi™ host to NAS, iSCSI, or Fibre Channel storage
•  Create a VMware vSphere® VMFS datastore
•  Use a wizard or a template to create a virtual machine
•  Migrate a virtual machine with VMware vSphere® vMotion®
•  Migrate a virtual machine with VMware vSphere® Storage vMotion®

 

If you cannot complete all of these tasks, VMware recommends that you complete the VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.5] course before enrolling in VMware vSAN: Deploy and Manage.
