VMware Cloud Foundation Starts with vSAN - Webcast

VMware Cloud Foundation provides a complete set of software-defined services for compute, storage, networking, and cloud management to run enterprise apps—traditional and containerized—in private and public cloud environments. This session focuses on why hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) powered by VMware vSAN is the ideal building block for Cloud Foundation—and is the most comprehensive hybrid cloud architecture available. 

We will discuss the features that simplify “Day 0” deployment, “Day 1” configuration, and “Day 2” lifecycle management of a Cloud Foundation environment built on hyperconverged infrastructure.

VMware Specialist - vSAN 2019 (vSANSpecialist2019)

My list of VMware certifications now exceeds 20, and now VMware have released another certification for me to pursue.

I love the vSAN product and it's something I've used for years with both VDI solutions and increasingly server virtualisation.

The vSAN 2019 badge validates that an earner can properly design a vSAN cluster including the selection of supported hardware, compute and storage capacities, and performance profile. An earner is able to install and configure vSphere and vSAN according to business requirements and vendor recommendations. He or she is also capable of managing and monitoring a cluster to help ensure consistent performance and minimal downtime. An earner can perform basic troubleshooting and problem resolution.

The plan is as follows

1. Earn the VMware Certified Professional - Data Center Virtualization 2019 (VCP-DCV 2019)

2. (Recommended) Attend one of the training courses

  • VMware vSAN: Deploy and Manage [6.7]
  • VMware vSAN: Production Operations [6.7]
  • VMware vSAN v6.7 - Getting Statrted Hands on Lab
3. Pass the VMware vSAN 6.7 Specialist Exam 2019 (5V0-21.19)

120 minute exam 60 Questions and costs $250
