Alert Me

Description

This five-day course features intensive hands-on training that focuses on installing, configuring, and managing VMware
vSphere® 7, which includes VMware ESXi™ 7 and VMware vCenter Server® 7. This course prepares you to administer a
vSphere infrastructure for an organization of any size. This course is the foundation for most of the other VMware technologies in
the software-defined data center.

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

  • Describe the software-defined data center (SDDC)
    Explain the vSphere components and their function in the infrastructure
    Install and configure VMware ESXi™ hosts
    Deploy and configure VMware vCenter® Server Appliance™
    Use VMware vSphere® Client™ to manage the vCenter Server inventory and the vCenter Server configuration
    Manage, monitor, back up, and protect vCenter Server Appliance
    Create virtual networks with vSphere standard switches
    Describe the storage technologies supported by vSphere
    Configure virtual storage using iSCSI and NFS storage
    Create and manage VMware vSphere® VMFS datastores
    Use the vSphere Client to create virtual machines, templates, clones, and snapshots
    Create a content library and deploy virtual machines from templates in the library
    Manage virtual machine resource use
    Migrate virtual machines with VMware vSphere® vMotion® and VMware vSphere® Storage vMotion®
    Create and manage a vSphere cluster that is enabled with VMware vSphere® High Availability and VMware vSphere®
    Distributed Resource Scheduler™
    Discuss solutions for managing the vSphere life cycle
    Use VMware vSphere® Update Manager™ to apply patches and perform upgrades to ESXi hosts and virtual machines
