This powerful 5-day class is an intensive introduction to VMware vSphere™ including VMware ESX™ 6.5 and vCenter™. This course has been completely rewritten to reflect the most recent changes and improvements introduced in vSphere 6.5. The courseware and labs have been fully updated and now use Host Client and Web Client rather than legacy vSphere Client for both presentation material and lab procedures.
Assuming no prior virtualization experience, this class starts with the basics and rapidly progresses to advanced topics. With 40+% of class time is devoted to labs, students learn the skills they need to become effective vSphere administrators.
Labs start with installation and configuration of stand-alone ESXi servers and progress to shared storage, networking, and centralized management. The class continues to advanced topics including resource balancing, high availability, power management, back up and recovery, performance, vCenter redundancy, VM redundancy. Disaster recovery, rapid deployment and VM cold, hot and storage migration.
This class is unique in its approach; which is to identify and eliminate common IT pain points using vSphere. Students learn how to deliver business value; not just the technical or mechanical aspects of the software.
By the end of the class, attendees will have learned the skills and best practices of virtualization. Attendees will be able to design, implement, deploy, configure, monitor, manage and troubleshoot vSphere 6.5.
