CODE: VM-VSAN-DM-55

LENGTH: 2 days

PRICE: $1,695.00

Description

- Formats: Classroom, Lab, Live Online - Length: 2 Days Overview: This training course focuses on deploying and managing a software-defined storage solution with VMware® Virtual SAN™ 5.5. This course looks at how Virtual SAN is used as an important component in the VMware® software-defined data center (SDDC). Students gain practical experience with these concepts through the completion of hands-on labs. The course is based on the VMware® ESXi™ 5.5 Update 1 and the VMware® vCenter Server™ 5.5 Update 1.

Objectives

• Define the key components of a software-defined data center • Identify benefits of software-defined storage solutions • Compare and contrast disk types and storage technologies • Explain file, block, and object-oriented storage • Identify Virtual SAN requirements, use cases, and architecture components • Plan and design a Virtual SAN deployment • Configure Virtual SAN clusters • Identify benefits of storage policy-based management • Scale a Virtual SAN deployment based on storage needs • Monitor Virtual SAN • Troubleshoot Virtual SAN • Identify the integration of Virtual SAN with the VMware product portfolio

Audience

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

Prerequisites

• Storage administration experience on block or file storage devices • Understanding of concepts presented in the VMware vSphere®: Install, Configure, Manage course
