Course Overview

Top

This five-day course provides hands-on training to equip students with a range of skills, from performing routine VMware vSphere® 7 administrative tasks to complex vSphere operations and configurations. Through lab-based activities, students are immersed in real-life situations faced by VMBeans, a fictitious company.  These situations expose students to real-life scenarios faced by companies that are building and scaling their virtual infrastructure.
 
Approximately 90% of the class is application-focused and taught through labs.  The course aligns fully with the VMware Certified Advanced Professional – Data Center Virtualization Deploy exam objectives.
