VMware NSX for Internetworking Experts Fast Track [V6.1]

Achieve superior VMware NSX skills with minimal time away from the office.

GK# 3258

Course Overview

TOP

This comprehensive, fast-paced course is designed for advanced Cisco network administrators who want a comprehensive understanding of how to use VMware NSX in their enterprise. You will learn how to use the NSX network virtualization and security platform. This course covers NSX as a part of the software-defined data center, implementation, use cases, features, and functionality operating at Layer 2 through Layer 7 of the OSI model. Data center network architectures are examined to demonstrate how NSX intersects with and virtualizes functions of a Cisco-based infrastructure in spine-leaf and traditional core-aggregate-access architectures. Lecture and hands-on lab activities support your understanding of NSX features, functionality, and on-going management and control. 

This course requires a solid background in a Cisco-based infrastructure. If you do not have this background, you should take the NSX: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.X]  course.
