Course Content

 

This two-day, hands-on training course provides you with the knowledge, skills, and tools to plan and deploy a VMware vSAN™ cluster. In this course, you are taught the many considerations that the vSAN

configuration has on the initial planning of the vSAN datastore. You also manually configure a vSAN cluster.

Prerequisites

 

You should have the following understanding or knowledge:
• Understanding of concepts presented in the VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage course

• Knowledge of basic storage concepts
• Experience using vSphere Client to perform administrative tasks on vSphere clusters

 

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:
• Explain the key features and use cases for vSAN
• Detail the underlying vSAN architecture and components
• Describe the different vSAN deployment options
• Detail vSAN cluster requirements and considerations
• Apply recommended vSAN design considerations and capacity sizing practices
• Explain the influence of vSAN objects and components on the initial cluster plan
• Determine and plan for storage consumption by data growth and failure tolerance
• Design vSAN hosts for operational needs

• Explain Maintenance Mode use and its impacts on vSAN
• Apply best practices for vSAN network configurations
• Manually configure a vSAN cluster using VMware vSphere® Client™
• Explain and configure vSAN fault domains
• Understand and apply vSAN storage policies
• Define encryption in the vSAN cluster
• Describe the architecture and use cases for stretched clusters
• Configure a stretched cluster
• Understand the steps involved in creating the vSAN iSCSI target services
