VMware NSX for Internetworking Experts Fast Track (V6.2)

VMware NSX for Internetworking Experts Fast Track (V6.2)


Duration: 5 Days

This comprehensive, fast-paced training course focuses on installing, configuring, and managing VMware NSX®. This course addresses 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.
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.

Product Alignment
•  NSX 6.2
•  VMware vSphere® 6


By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:

•  Describe the software-defined data center
•  Describe how NSX is the next step in the evolution of the software-defined data center
•  Describe features and benefits of NSX network virtualization
•  Identify prerequisites for NSX
•  Configure and deploy NSX management, control, and data plane components
•  Configure, deploy, and use logical switch networks
•  Describe advanced networking products and features that are relevant to NSX
•  Configure and deploy the NSX distributed router to optimize east-west data center traffic flows
•  Configure and deploy VMware NSX® Edge™ services gateway appliances
•  Explore advanced routing designs that optimize north-south traffic flows
•  Configure and use NSX virtual private networks
•  Configure and use logical load balancing
•  Configure NSX Edge firewall and distributed firewall policy rules
•  Configure Service Composer security groups and policies
•  Use role-based access to control user account privileges
•  Use activity monitoring to validate and create security policies
•  Design an NSX solution that considers rack design and advanced networking capabilities
