About this Course

This course equips you with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to design and deploy a VMware vSphere® 6.0 virtual infrastructure. You follow a proven approach to design and deploy a virtualization solution that is available, scalable, manageable, and secure. This course discusses the benefits and risks of available design alternatives and provides information to support making sound design decisions. In this course, you practice your design skills by working with peers on a design project. You also deploy components of a completed vSphere design. This course is based on VMware ESXi™ 6.0 and VMware vCenter Server™ 6.0.

Who should attend

  • Experienced System Integrators
  • Consultants responsible for designing and deploying vSphere environments
