description :
In this five-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 and troubleshooting methodology and diagnostic tools through the completion of hands-on lab exercises.
 
Objectives
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
  • 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
  • Use diagnostic and troubleshooting tools to resolve vSAN deployment and architectural issues
 
Target Audience
Storage and virtual infrastructure administrators 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 a student can perform the following tasks with no assistance or guidance before enrolling in this course:
