“Virtual classroom sometimes leaves things to be desired but Vince requesting cameras on-participation really helped foster a classroom type environment. Had lots of side conversations with my classmates and it was overall a great experience.”

This five-day course features intensive hands-on training that focuses on installing, configuring and managing VMware vSphere® 7, which includes VMware ESXi™ 7 and VMware vCenter Server® 7. The course will review all the ways to manage virtual machines in the VMware cloud computing environment and will allow you to create a highly resilient vSphere software-defined data center. Taking the course prepares you to administer a vSphere infrastructure for organizations of any size and is the foundation for most of the other VMware technologies in the software-defined data center.

VMware certifications are a must-have for many IT professionals. VMware Certifications are a badge of honor, designed to validate your expertise in virtualization technologies. If you’re interested in becoming a certified VMware professional, this course is the perfect place to start and it meets the VMware requirements needed for the VMware certification process. This course is for the system administrator or system engineer who is relatively new to virtualization or has never played with a virtual machine. You’ll learn how virtual machines interact with the physical hardware that they’re running on and about the VMware ESXi, an enterprise-class, type-1 hypervisor developed by VMware for deploying and serving virtual computers. As a type-1 hypervisor, ESXi is not a software application that is installed on an operating system; instead, it includes and integrates vital OS components.

You’ll be building and playing with virtual machines, so it will be helpful for you to already know how to install and manage Microsoft Windows or Linux Operating Systems. It will also be helpful if you have at least some networking and storage experience.

VMware Horizon 8: Deploy and Manage is a five-day combination course of VMware Horizon 8: Skills for Virtual Desktop Management & VMware Horizon 8: Infrastructure Administration. This training collection gives you the hands-on skills to deliver virtual desktops and applications through a single virtual desktop infrastructure platform. You will build on your skills in configuring and managing VMware Horizon® 8 through a combination of lecture and hands-on labs. You learn how to configure and deploy pools of virtual machines and how to provide a customized desktop environment to end-users. Additionally, you will learn how to install and configure a virtual desktop infrastructure platform. You learn how to install and configure VMware Horizon® Connection Server™, VMware Unified Access Gateway™, how to configure a load balancer for use with Horizon, and how to establish Cloud Pod Architecture.
