Rick Crisci demonstrates the configuration of of a Virtual Volumes data store, and introduces resources that can be used to get hands-on experience.
- [Narrator] In this video I'll be demonstrating the process…of creating a datastore on a Virtual Volume's storage array…I'll be doing this using the VMware…hands-on lab environment.…Specifically I'll be using the VVOL, Virtual SAN,…and Storage Policy-Based Management hands-on lab.…Let's start by opening Chrome.…Now one thing I want to point out before we get started,…notice there are bookmarks for…EqualLogic Group Manager, and EMC Unisphere.…
With this hands-on lab you can…actually manage these storage solutions,…and do things like create storage containers.…We're not going to do that in this demo,…I'm simply going to create a datastore…on a virtual volume's storage array,…but I wanted to point these features out,…because these hands-on lab exercises are free.…So if you want to get your hands-on these solutions,…and actually configure the storage array aspects,…I highly recommend going through this hands-on lab exercise.…
That being said, I'm going to go ahead…and log onto the vSphere web client.…We'll take a look at the process involved…
