At the end of the course, you should gain an understanding of the functionality in vSphere 5 and be able to do the following:

  • Install and configure ESXi
  • Install and configure vCenter Server components
  • Configure and manage ESXi networking and storage using vCenter Server
  • Deploy, manage, and migrate virtual machines
  • Manage user access to the VMware infrastructure
  • Use vCenter Server to monitor resource usage
  • Use vCenter Server to increase scalability
  • Use VMware vCenter™ Update Manager to apply ESXi patches
  • Use vCenter Server to manage higher availability and data protection

This course is intended for system administrators, systems engineers and operators responsible for ESXi and vCenter Server.

System administration experience on Microsoft Windows or Linux operating systems.

Se dispone de un ordenador por alumno. El curso tiene una duración de 15 horas (consultar los horarios disponibles en el calendario de NH Barcelona). El nº de plazas es limitado.
