VMware vSphere 6.0: Optimize and Scale

Alert Me

Description

VMware vSphere: Optimize and Scale is a 5 day instructor-led course designed for experienced VMware vSphere® users. It teaches advanced skills for configuring and maintaining a highly available and scalable virtual infrastructure. Through a mix of lecture and hands-on labs, you will configure and optimize the vSphere features that build a foundation for a truly scalable infrastructure and discuss when and where these features have the greatest effect. Anyone who is ready to take their understanding of vSphere to a deeper level and learn how to use advanced features and controls will greatly benefit from this course. The course is based on VMware ESXi™ 6 and VMware vCenter Server™ 6.

This course prepares the student for the VMware Certified Advanced Professional 5 – Data Center Administration (VCAP5-DCA). Also, successful completion of this course satisfies the prerequisite to take the VMware Certified Professional – Data Center Virtualization (VCP-DCV) certification exam.
