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

  • Describe the vSAN architecture
  • Identify vSAN features and use cases
  • Configure vSAN networking components
  • Configure a vSAN cluster
  • Deploy virtual machines on a vSAN datastore
  • Configure virtual machine storage policies
  • Perform ongoing vSAN management tasks

Good material and very knowledgeable instructor. The VM used is very effective and easy to navigate.

I've taken 2 AWS courses at ExitCertified both of them IMVP, they're my training provider of choice!

The trainee was really knowledgeable and was answering all the questions and provided a lot of explanations with real world examples.

Excellent facilities, excellent staff.. and the coffee is good too! Thanks for helping to advance my career and the career of my colleagues!

The instructor was very good. He had a terrific temperament and never seemed to get tired. He was very patient with some of the participants and their lack of experience.
