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.


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


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 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
