CODE: VM-VS-OS-V6.7

LENGTH: 5 days

PRICE: $4,625.00

Description

This five-daycourse teaches you advanced skills for configuring and maintaining a highly available and scalable virtual infrastructure. Through a mix of lecture and hands-on labs, you configure and optimize the VMware vSphere 6.7 features that build a foundation for a truly scalable infrastructure, and you discuss when and where these featureshave the greatest effect. This course deepens your understanding of vSphere and how its advanced features and controls can benefit your organization.

Objectives

By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:

  •  Configure and manage vSphere networking and storage for a large and sophisticated enterprise
  • Use VMware vSphere® Client™, VMware vSphere® Web Client, and VMware vSphere ESXi Shellto manage vSphere
  • Create a content library for deploying virtual machines
  • Use VMware vSphere® Auto Deploy™and host profiles to provision VMware ESXi hosts and manage ESXi host compliance
  •  Monitor and analyze key performance indicators for compute, storage, and networking resources for ESXi hosts
  • Optimize the performance of ESXi and VMware vCenter Server
  • Harden the vSphere environment against security threats
  • Encrypt virtual machines for additional security
