Overview

This two-day technical classroom training course is designed to help operators and administrators who create and manage virtual machines. By combining lecture and hands-on labs the course will help you gain the skills required to work effectively with VMware virtual machines. This course is based on VMware ESXi™ 6.0 and VMware vCenter Server™ 6.0.

Target Audience
Technical professionals with system administration skills and operators responsible for managing virtual machines using ESXi and vCenter Server

Objectives

The objective of this course is to provide you with a strong understanding of VMware virtual machine features in vSphere 6.0. By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:

  • Describe virtualization, virtual machines, and vSphere components
  • Describe the concepts of server, network, storage, and desktop virtualization
  • Deploy, configure, clone, and manage virtual machines
  • Use vCenter Server to monitor virtual machine resource usage
  • Use VMware vSphere® vApp(s)™ to bundle and manage multiple interoperating virtual machines and software applications
  • Use VMware vSphere® vMotion® and VMware vSphere® Storage vMotion® to migrate virtual machines
  • Use VMware vSphere® Distributed Resource Scheduler™, VMware vSphere® High Availability, VMware vSphere® Fault Tolerance, VMware vSphere® Data Protection™, and VMware vSphere® Replication™ to optimize the performance of your vSphere virtual environment
