During this three-day course, you will focus on deploying and managing a software-defined storage solution with VMware vSAN™ 6.7. You will learn how Virtual SAN functions as an important component in the VMware software-defined data center (SDDC). You will gain practical experience with Virtual SAN concepts through the completion of hands-on lab exercises.

By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:

  • Define vSAN architecture
  • Easily identify vSAN features and use cases
  • Successfully configure vSAN networking components
  • Successfully configure a vSAN cluster
  • Effectively deploy virtual machines on a vSAN datastore
  • Successfully configure virtual machine storage policies
  • Configure vSAN encryption
  • Execute ongoing vSAN management tasks
  • Control vSAN resynchronization tasks
  • Create and manage nested fault domains
  • Use the vSAN health service to monitor health and performance
  • Successfully configure a stretched cluster and observe failover scenarios
  • Define vSAN interoperability with VMware vSphere® features and other products
  • Effectively plan and design a vSAN cluster
  • Storage and virtual infrastructure administrators who want to use software-defined storage with vSAN

This course requires needs 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.x] course

    Experience working at the command line is helpful.

VMware Consulting and Training Credits are pre-paid services dollars which can be redeemed for any combination of VMware packaged consulting, custom consulting or training. Credits provide customers with the flexibility to allocate budget for services and use the services when needed. To redeem credits for education classes, follow the standard registration process. When the payment question comes up, select pay with PSO credits. More information will be provided by contacting our representative.

Class timings are 9:30 am to 5:30 pm(IST)

Our live online classes are conducted in the same manner as our classroom classes, using the same manuals and lab equipment. Just as in our classroom classes, each online student is assigned a set of remote lab equipment including an ESXi host and various pre-configured Virtual machines, as the specific class they are attending requires. The students connect to the lab environment using Microsoft’s Remote Display Protocol (RDP) in order to perform the lab exercises. The vast majority of our online students find the class experience equivalent to or better than a classroom delivered class.

Exams can be taken in any PearsonVUE centres in India. Validity is 1 year from date of purchase.

All our trainers are VMware Certified Instructors. Our representatives will share the trainer profile once you start interacting with them.

Class will be 50:50 mixture of theory and practical. You will get class id, labs soft copy of courseware and participation certificate from VMware.

We accept all modes of payment. If you are being nominated by your organization, your organization need to release PO before the course start date. If you are an individual you can pay through credit / debit cards, online transfer (RTGS/NEFT) to our account 7 days prior to the course start date
