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.

Product Alignment

•  ESXi 6.5

•  vCenter Server 6.5

•  vSAN 6.6



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


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] 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®

•  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.
