By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:

•  Describe the Virtual SAN architecture
•  Identify Virtual SAN features and use cases
•  Configure Virtual SAN networking components
•  Configure a Virtual SAN cluster
•  Deploy virtual machines on a Virtual SAN datastore
•  Configure virtual machine storage policies
•  Perform ongoing Virtual SAN management tasks
•  Outline the tasks for upgrading to Virtual SAN 6.2
•  Use the Virtual SAN health service to monitor health and performance
•  Monitor Virtual SAN with VMware ESXi commands and the Ruby vSphere Console
•  Configure a stretched cluster and observe failover scenarios
•  Describe Virtual SAN interoperability with VMware vSphere and other products
•  Plan and design a Virtual SAN cluster

Prerequisites

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] course

Experience with 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 an 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] course before enrolling in VMware Virtual SAN: Deploy and Manage.

By far the most competitve price we found, which included exam vouchers, hands on labs, practice test and a true Master of Cyber Security concepts as our Instructor. Franklin Mesa was the best trainer I have ever had and i walked out certified on the last day of my CompTIA Security+ certification bootcamp.

The Academy is one of the best educational values for today's job market.  I studied hard and got certified (A+ and N+).  Even though I had no prior IT experience, I now have a good job replacing obsolete computers in hospitals throughout the country.  At my job interview, I just slid my test scores and certification across the table to the interviewer, who is now my boss.  I was hired the next day.  

Not bad for a 65 year old.
