Each attendee needs a PC that supports Microsoft Terminal Services Lab Time 40+% of class time is devoted to hands-on labs Certification Prepares attendees to challenge the independent Certified Virtualization Specialist exam (Exam is provided on-line is included in the package price).

Overview

This powerful 5-day class is an intensive introduction to VMware
vSphere™ 6.0 including VMware ESX™ 6.0 and vCenter™.  No prior
virtualization experience, this class starts with the basics and rapidly progresses to advanced topics. 40+% of class time is devoted to labs so concepts, skills and best practices are developed and reinforced.

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, hot migration and workload consolidation are also covered.

This class is unique in its approach; which is to identify and eliminate common IT pain points and then to use virtualization to delivers clear, tangible benefits. Each topic is presented from the perspective of delivering key business value;

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.

Description: Overview

This powerful 5-day class is an intensive introduction to VMware vSphere™ including VMware ESX™ 6.0 and vCenter™. This course has been completely rewritten to reflect the changes and improvements introduced in vSphere 6. Our courseware and labs have been fully updated and now use 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, hot migration and workload consolidation are also covered.

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 developed in-depth vSphere knowledge, skills, best practices. Attendees will be able to design, implement, configure, monitor, manage and troubleshoot vSphere 6.0.
