In this three-day course, you focus on deploying and managing a software-defined storage solution with VMware vSAN 6.7. You learn how vSAN functions as an important component in the VMware software-defined data center. You gain practical experience with vSAN concepts through the completion of hands-on lab exercises.
vCenter Server 6.7
Storage and virtual infrastructure administrators who want to use software-defined storage with vSAN.
By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:
Describe the vSAN architecture
Identify vSAN features and use cases
Configure vSAN networking components
Configure a vSAN cluster
Deploy virtual machines on a vSAN datastore
Configure virtual machine storage policies
Perform ongoing vSAN management tasks
Configure vSAN encryption
Control vSAN resynchronization tasks
Create and manage nested fault domains
Use the vSAN health service to monitor health and performance
Configure a stretched cluster and observe failover scenarios
Describe vSAN interoperability with VMware vSphere features and other products
Plan and design a vSAN cluster
This course requires meeting 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] (VSICM)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 Client
Create and manage VMware vCenter Server objects, such as data centers, clusters, hosts, and virtual machines
Create and modify a standard switch
Create and modify a distributed 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 [V6.7] (VSICM) course before enrolling in VMware vSAN: Deploy and Manage.
