VMware vSAN: Deploy and Manage [V6.6] (VSANDM66)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline
 

Course Content

In this three-day course, 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.

Who should attend

  • Storage infrastructure administrators
  • Virtual infrastructure administrators
  • Anyone who want to use software-defined storage with vSAN

Prerequisites

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] course
  • Experience working at the command line is helpful

The course material presumes that you 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 machines
  • 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®
  • 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 [V6.5] course before enrolling in VMware vSAN: Deploy and Manage.

Course Objectives

By the end of VMware vSAN: Deploy and Manage, 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
  • Outline the tasks for upgrading to vSAN 6.6
  • 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
