This powerful 4-day class is an intensive introduction to the advanced features of VMware vSphere 5.x. Candidates are assuming to have working knowledge of VMware vSphere 4.x or vSphere 5.x. We build on that knowledge through a rapid review of common features followed by in-depth presentations of advanced topics including vSphere 5.x performance, availability, scalability and security. 40+% of class time is devoted to labs so concepts, skills and best practices are developed and reinforced.
Labs start with installation and configuration of ESXi server, vCenter, vCenter Linux Appliance and Virtual Machines. From there, we look at performance and scalability topics including Hotplug Virtual Hardware, Profile Driven Storage and DRS and Storage DRS clusters. Availability is covered in vCenter Linked Mode, HA Clusters and VM Fault Tolerance. VM security topics include vShield Endpoint anti-malware and vShield Zones virtual firewall services.
This class is unique in its approach; which is to identify and eliminate common IT pain points and then to use virtualization to deliver clear, tangible benefits. Each topic is presented from the perspective of delivering key business value; not just the technical or mechanical aspects of the software.
4 Days/Lecture & Lab
This class is suitable for anyone who want to learn how to extract the maximum benefit from their investment in Virtual Infrastructure, including:
vSphere Administrators currently working on vSphere 4.x installations
System architects or others who need to design virtual infrastructure
Security specialists responsible for monitor, managing, securing and administering Virtual Infrastructure
Performance and capacity analysts who need to understand, provision, monitor and performance tune Virtual Infrastructure
Backup Administrators who need to understand the impact of existing and new back up strategies in a virtual environment
Business Continuity specialists responsible for disaster recovery and high availability
Storage administrators who need to understand how VMware ESX uses Fibre SAN and iSCSI SAN volumes and NAS datastores
Attendees should have good familiarity with VMware vSphere 4.0 or newer. Experience installing, configuring and managing operating systems, storage systems and or networks is useful but not required. We assume that all attendees have a basic familiarity with PC server hardware, disk partitioning, IP addressing, O/S installation, networking, etc.
