VMware vSan Management and Operations

      In the course VMware vSan management and Operations, 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.

      Intended Audience

      Storage and virtual infrastructure administrators who want to use software-defined storage with vSAN


      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 or 6.7] 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
      •  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® and 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 or 6.7] course before enrolling in VMware vSAN: Deploy and Manage.
