VMware vSphere: Optimize and Scale is designed for experienced VMware vSphere® users. It teaches advanced skills for configuring and maintaining a highly available and scalable virtual infrastructure. Through a mix of lecture and hands-on labs, you will configure and optimize the vSphere features that build a foundation for a truly scalable infrastructure and discuss when and where these features have the greatest effect. Anyone who is ready to take their understanding of vSphere to a deeper level and learn how to use advanced features and controls will greatly benefit from this course. The course is based on VMware ESXi™ 6 and VMware vCenter Server™ 6.

You Will Learn How To

  • Configure and manage ESXi networking and storage for a large and sophisticated enterprise
  • Manage changes to the vSphere environment
  • Optimize the performance of all vSphere components
  • Harden the vSphere environment against security threats
  • Troubleshoot operational faults and identify their root causes
  • Use VMware vSphere® ESXi™ Shell and VMware vSphere® Management Assistant to manage vSphere
  • Use VMware vSphere® Auto Deploy™ to provision ESXi hosts

Note: About one-third of the! VM-VIWN course content is repeated in this course. The scalability topics in VMware vSphere 6.0: Fast Track (VVFT) are repeated in this course.
