VMware vSphere: Optimize and Scale [V5.0]

This training course, for experienced VMware vSphere® personnel, teaches advanced skills for configuring and maintaining a highly available and scalable virtual infrastructure. The course is based on VMware vSphere® ESXi™ 5.0 and VMware® vCenter™ Server 5.0.

At the end of the course, you should be able to do the following:

  • Configure and manage ESXi networking and storage for a large and sophisticated enterprise.
  • Manage changes to the vSphere environment.
  • Optimize the performance of all vSphere components.
  • Troubleshoot operational faults and identify their root causes.
  • Use VMware vSphere® ESXi™ Shell and VMware vSphere® Management Assistant to manage vSphere.
  • Use VMware vSphere® Auto Deploy to provision ESXi hosts

This course is intended for experienced system administrators and system integrators.

Required prerequisites include completion of one of the following courses:

  • VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V5]
  • VMware vSphere: What’s New [V5]
  • VMware vSphere: Fast Track [V5] (Fast Track scalability topics are repeated in this course)
  • Equivalent knowledge and administration experience with ESXi and vCenter Server
  • Experience working at the command prompt is highly recommended

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.
