You will gain practical experience with Virtual SAN concepts through the completion of hands-on lab exercises.


At the end of the course, students will be able to:

  • 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.


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


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.
