Course Overview

This training course focuses on preparing you to deploy and manage a software-defined storage solution with VMware® Virtual SAN™ 6. VMware Virtual SAN 6: Deploy and Manage 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™ 6 , VMware® vCenter Server™ 6 and VMware Virtual SAN 6.
