This comprehensive 5-day course provides an intense introduction to VMware vSphereTM, covering VMware ESXiTM 7 and vCenterTM 7. This course has been totally updated to match the most recent updates offered in vSphere 7.
Assuming no prior virtualization knowledge, this session begins with the fundamentals and quickly moves to advanced subjects. Students develop the skills they need to become competent vSphere administrators by spending 45 percent or more of their instructional time in laboratories.
Students work in dedicated laboratories that begin with the installation and configuration of stand-alone ESXi servers and advance through shared storage, networking, and centralized administration. The course progresses to advanced subjects like as resource management, high availability, replication, performance, disaster preparedness, quick deployment, and VM cold, hot, and storage migration.
This seminar is unusual in its approach, which is to use vSphere to discover and eliminate typical IT pain points. Students learn how to offer commercial value rather than merely technical or mechanical components of software.
Attendees will have acquired the abilities and best practices of virtualization at the end of the workshop. Attendees will be capable of designing, implementing, deploying, configuring, monitoring, managing, and troubleshooting vSphere 7.
At the end of the course, attendees will be able to:
- Explain the many significant benefits of virtualization
- Install ESXi 7.0 according to best practices
- Use Host Client to manage standalone ESXi hosts
- Configure and manage local storage resources
- Create virtual and virtual to physical network configurations
- Define and use file share (NAS / NFS) datastores
- Create virtual machines, install operating systems and applications
- Install, configure and upgrade VMware Tools
- Install, configure and update vCenter Server Appliance
- Rapidly deployment of VMs using golden-master VM templates
- Create clones – one-time copies of virtual machine
- Use Guest OS customization to rapidly configure new VMs according to requirements
- Configure and use hotplug hardware including hot-add vCPUs and Memory
- Configure, manage, monitor and secure users and groups
- Understand the benefits and trade offs of network attached storage and Fibre, iSCSI SANs
- Configure and use shared SAN storage including Fibre SAN, iSCSI SAN
- Add and grow virtual disks including system disks and secondary volumes
- Use vCenter alarms to monitor ESXi, VM, storage and network health, performance, state
- Use Resource Pools to bulk delegate resource to meet Service Level Agreements
- Perform VM cold migrations, hot VMotion migrations and hot Storage VMotion migrations
- Configure and manage server CPU and Memory capacity and maintain VM responsiveness with Distributed Resource Schedule load balanced clusters
- Deliver high VM service availability using VMware High Availability clusters
- Use HA to successfully minimize unplanned VM down time caused by ESXi host failures, storage network failures or SAN volume failures
- Patch and update ESXi servers using vCenter Lifecycle Manager
- Monitor and tune both ESXi and virtual machine performance
- Understand how VMware and third party products, including operating systems, are impacted by virtualization
- Troubleshoot common problems
Attendees should have user, operator or administrator experience on common operating systems such as Microsoft Windows®, Linux™, UNIX™, etc. Experience installing, configuring and managing operating systems, storage systems and or networks is useful but not required. We assume that all attendees have a basic familiarity with PC server hardware, disk partitioning, IP addressing, O/S installation, networking, etc.
Who Should Attend
This class is suitable for anyone who want to learn how to extract the maximum benefit from their investment in Virtual Infrastructure, including:
- System architects or others who need to design virtual infrastructure
- Security specialists responsible for administering, managing, securing Virtual Infrastructure
- Operators responsible for day-to-day operation of Virtual Infrastructure
- Performance analysts who need to understand, provision, monitor Virtual Infrastructure
- Business Continuity specialists responsible for disaster recovery and high availability
- Storage administrators who work with Fibre / iSCSI SAN volumes and NAS datastores
- Managers who need an unbiased understanding of virtualization before committing their organization to a virtual infrastructure deployment.
