This training course focuses on deploying and managing a software-defined storage solution with VMware® Virtual SAN™ 5.5. This course 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™ 5.5 Update 1 and the VMware® vCenter Server™ 5.5 Update 1.
