Course Description Schedule Course Outline
 

VMware NSX: Install, Configure, Manage v6.2 is also available in On-Demand e-learning.

Course Content

This comprehensive, fast-paced training course focuses on installing, configuring, and managing VMware NSX™. This course covers VMware NSX as a part of the software-defined data center (SDDC) platform. You will learn how to use the logical switching functionality in NSX to virtualize your switching environment. The course also details logical routing to enable you to dynamically route between different virtual environments. Additionally, you will learn how to take advantage of gateway services, firewall configurations, and security services to help secure and optimize your NSX environment.

Access to an SDDC environment is provided through hands-on labs to reinforce the skills and concepts presented in the course.
