VSPSA67 - VMware vSphere: Skills for Public Sector Administrators [V6.7]

Overview

Duration: 5.0 days
This five-day, intensive course takes you from introductory to advanced VMware vSphere® management skills. Building on the installation and configuration content from VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.7], you will develop advanced skills needed to manage and maintain a highly available and scalable virtual infrastructure. Through a mix of lecture and hands-on labs, you will install, configure and manage vSphere 6.7. You will explore the features that build a foundation for a scalable infrastructure and discuss when and where these features have the greatest effect. This course prepares you to administer a vSphere infrastructure for an organization of any size using vSphere 6.7, which includes VMware ESXi™ 6.7 and VMware vCenter Server® 6.7.
