VMware vSAN plus VMware vRealize Operations: Deploy and Manage (V6.6)

In this intensive five-day course, you will target on deploying and managing a software-defined storage solution with VMware vSAN™ 6.6. You may find out how vSAN functions as an important component in the VMware software-defined data center. You will also gain practical knowledge with vSAN concepts upon the completion of hands-on lab exercises. This course also trains you how to use VMware vRealize® Operations™ as a forensic and predictive tool. Based on VMware ESXi™ 6.5, VMware vCenter Server® 6.5, and vRealize Operations 6.6, this course includes instruction on advanced capabilities, including customization and management.
