VMware vSAN with Horizon - On Demand (EDU-VSANH-EL)

This hands-on course, equivalent to one day of training, builds skills in post-deployment configuration and administration of VMware Horizon® 7. The configuration and administration skills are focused on the inclusion of VMware vSAN™ 6.7 storage datastores for desktop pools and virtual machines deployed and managed by VMware Horizon 7.
 
Objectives
By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:
  • Identify vSAN and VMware Horizon 7 integration considerations
  • Recognize the benefits of using vSAN as the native storage for VMware Horizon 7
  • Describe basic vSAN architecture and components
  • Describe basic VMware Horizon 7 architecture and components
  • Identify the vSAN features that benefit VMware Horizon 7
  • Describe key vSAN characteristics
  • Identify ways to overcome vSAN limitations in a VMware Horizon 7 environment
