Beschreibung

This five-day course provides hands-on training to equip students with a range of skills, from performing routine VMware
vSphere 8 administrative tasks to complex vSphere operations and configurations. Through lab-based activities,
students are immersed in real-life situations faced by VMBeans, a fictitious company. These situations expose students to
real-life scenarios faced by companies that are building and scaling their virtual infrastructure.
This course uses scenario-based lab exercises and does not provide guided step-by-step instructions. To complete the
scenario-based lab exercises, you are required to analyze the task, research, and deduce the required solution.
References and suggested documentation are provided. This course utilizes labs to teach students how to effectively
navigate and manage vSphere. The course aligns fully with the VMware Certified Advanced Professional – Data Center
Virtualization Deploy exam objectives.
