VMware vSAN: Plan and Deploy [V7]

Skip to Scheduled Dates

Course Overview

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 end vSAN configuration has on the initial planning of the vSAN datastore. You also perform a fully manual configuration of a vSAN cluster.
