Course Overview

Top

This three-day VMware design training course equips you with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to design a VMware vSphere® 7 virtual infrastructure. You follow a proven approach to design a virtualization solution that ensures availability, manageability, performance, recoverability, and security, and that uses VMware best practices. This course discusses the benefits and risks of available design alternatives and provides information to support making sound design decisions.

You will be given a case study, in order to practice your design skills by working with peers on a design project.

This course aligns to the following products: VMware ESXi™ 7, VMware vCenter Server® 7

Please Note: This training is also suitable for students who want to be trained on vSphere v6.5 or v6.7.
