Advanced Administration & Performance Management 5.5

Advanced Administration & Performance Management 5.5

Overview

Duration: 4 days
Course

This course features comprehensive coverage of performance management for Nutanix clusters and details how to optimize performance, fix issues that slow down your system, and improve datacenter performance. You’ll learn through hands-on labs how to monitor system performance as well as performance tuning. Also covered is advanced networking and storage to help optimize datacenter administration.

This course explains in detail how to use the major Acropolis services such as Acropolis Block Services (ABS) and Acropolis File Services (AFS). The course also explains how to define and manage assets and applications using Calm, including how to connect to clouds, automation of the Life Cycle Management (LCM) application, and how to implement and configure Self Service Portal and governance.

You will learn how to take advantage of Flash mode to improve system performance, as well as how to effectively clone and delete VMs, move them between storage containers, and how to manage VMs (tagging, sizing, migration).

This course also covers Data Protection solutions such as Cloud Connect and Metro Availability with Witness. Advanced management using the new features of Prism Central and the command line are also covered in exhaustive detail. This includes how to take advantage of machine learning with entity management and resource optimization as well as how to plan for future growth using Scenario Management.
