VMware Virtual SAN: Deploy and Manage Training v6.2 Course with Hands-on Labs Exercises

VMware Virtual SAN: Deploy and Manage Training v6.2 is a 3 day instructor led course where you will focus on deploying and managing a software-defined storage solution with VMware Virtual SAN 6.2. You will also learn how Virtual SAN functions as an important component in the VMware software-defined data center and gain practical experience with Virtual SAN concepts through the completion of hands-on lab exercises.

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
