VMware NSX: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.0]

Effectively install, configure, and manage VMware NSX.

GK# 3242

Course Overview


In this course, you will learn about installing, configuring, and managing VMware® NSX™. NSX is a software networking and security virtualization platform that delivers the operational model of a virtual machine for the network. Virtual networks reproduce the Layer 2-Layer 7 network model in software, enabling complex multitier network topologies to be created and provisioned programmatically in seconds. NSX also provides a new model for network security where security profiles are distributed to and enforced by virtual ports and move with virtual machines.

Note: If you purchase the on-demand version of this course, you will receive a free exam voucher.
