VMware NSX: Install, Configure, Manage plus Troubleshooting and Operations Fast Track [V6.4] (NSXICMTSFT64)

 

Course Content

This intensive five-day, extended-hours course focuses on installing, configuring and managing VMware NSX®. This course presents VMware NSX as a part of the software-defined data center. The course also details logical routing to enable you to dynamically route between different virtual environments.

You will learn how to use logical switching in VMware NSX to virtualize your switching environment and how to use gateway services, firewall configurations, and security services to help secure and optimize your VMware NSX environment. In addition, you will be presented with various types of technical problems which you will learn how to identify and solve through a systematic process. You will also be introduced to several operational, management, and troubleshooting tools.

A software-defined data center environment with hands-on labs is provided to reinforce the skills and concepts presented in the course.
