Pris: 35.000 sek

Course Overview

This intensive, extended-hours course combines instructor training with hands-on labs to focus on how to install, configure, manage, and troubleshoot VMware vSphere® 6, including VMware ESXi™ 6 and VMware vCenter Server™ 6.
This course combines the content of the VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage course with advanced training in both the troubleshooting skills needed for maintaining highly available and scalable vSphere environments, and the in-depth skills not covered in the Install, Configure and Manage course. Students gain practical experience with these concepts through the completion of hands-on labs.

Key Objectives

After completing this course, students will be able to:
• Deploy an ESXi host and create virtual machines
• Deploy a vCenter Server instance and the VMware vCenter™ Server Appliance™
• Configure and manage the vSphere infrastructure with VMware vSphere® Client™ and VMware vSphere® Web Client
• Configure vSphere standard and distributed switches
• Describe and use a content library
• Migrate virtual machines and storage with VMware vSphere® vMotion® and VMware vSphere® Storage vMotion®
• Use VMware vRealize™ Operations Manager™ to identify and solve issues through analytics and alerts
• Manage VMware vSphere® High Availability and VMware vSphere® Fault Tolerance
• Use VMware vSphere® Replication™ and VMware vSphere® Data Protection™ to replicate virtual machines and perform data recovery
• Use VMware vSphere® Distributed Resource Scheduler™ clusters to improve host scalability
• Use VMware vSphere® Update Manager™ to apply patches
• Perform basic troubleshooting of ESXi hosts, virtual machines, vCenter Server, virtual networking, virtual storage, and other vSphere operations

TARGET Audience

New or experienced system administrators, system engineers or system integrators who would like to join an intense hands-on pratical training.
