About this Course

VMware NSX for Internetworking Experts Fast Track is a comprehensive, fast-paced training course that focuses on installing, configuring and managing VMware NSX®. You will learn NSX as a part of the software-defined data center, implementation use cases and features of NSX and functionality operating at layer 2 through layer 7 of the OSI model. Additionally, you will learn how 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 ongoing management and control.
