Course Description

This powerful 5-day class is an intensive introduction to VMware vSphere™ including VMware ESXi™ 8 and vCenter™ 8. This course has been completely updated to reflect the most recent changes introduced in vSphere 8. Assuming no prior virtualization experience, this class starts with the basics and rapidly progresses to advanced topics. With 45+% of class time is devoted to labs, students learn the skills they need to become effective vSphere administrators. Students use dedicated labs that 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 management, high availability, replication, performance, disaster preparedness, rapid deployment and VM cold, hot and storage migration.



Before attending this course participants should be familiar with basic configuration of a Windows system.
