VMware vSAN: Deploy and Manage

Course Overview

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 centre. You gain practical experience with vSAN concepts through the completion of hands-on lab exercises.

Product Alignment

  • ESXi 6.7
  • vCenter Server 6.7
  • vSAN 6.7

Who Should Attend

  • Storage and virtual infrastructure administrators

Those who wants to use software-defined storage with vSAN.

Course Duration

3 Days / 21 Hours
