VMware Virtual SAN: Deploy and Manage


In this three-day course, you will focus on deploying and managing a software-defined storage solution with VMware Virtual SAN™ 6.2. You will learn how Virtual SAN functions as an important component in the VMware software-defined data center. You will gain practical experience with Virtual SAN concepts through the completion of hands-on lab exercises.


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


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] course Experience with 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 machines

· Create and modify a standard switch

· Connect an 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] course before enrolling in VMware Virtual SAN: Deploy and Manage.


This program will be conducted with interactive lectures, PowerPoint presentation, discussion and practical exercise.


By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:

· Describe the Virtual SAN architecture

· Identify Virtual SAN features and use cases

· Configure Virtual SAN networking components

· Configure a Virtual SAN cluster

· Deploy virtual machines on a Virtual SAN datastore

· Configure virtual machine storage policies

· Perform ongoing Virtual SAN management tasks

· Outline the tasks for upgrading to Virtual SAN 6.2

· Use the Virtual SAN health service to monitor health and performance

· Monitor Virtual SAN with VMware ESXi™ commands and the Ruby vSphere Console

· Configure a stretched cluster and observe failover scenarios

· Describe Virtual SAN interoperability with VMware vSphere® and other products

· Plan and design a Virtual SAN cluster
