This three-day training course equips you with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to design a VMware vSphere® 7 virtual infrastructure. You follow a proven approach to design a virtualization solution that ensures availability, manageability, performance, recoverability, and security, and that uses VMware best practices. This course discusses the benefits and risks of available design alternatives and provides information to support making sound design decisions.

  • Given a case study, you practice your design skills by working with peers on a design project.

Skills Gained

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

  • Identify the business objectives for the vSphere environment
  • Identify business requirements, constraints, assumptions, and risks for all layers in the vSphere environment
  • Apply a framework to a design
  • Analyze design choices and best-practice recommendations
  • Create a design that ensures availability, manageability, performance, recoverability, and security
  • Design the core management infrastructure for an enterprise
  • Design the virtual data center for an enterprise
  • Design the compute infrastructure for an enterprise
  • Design the storage and networking infrastructures for an enterprise
  • Design virtual machines to run applications in a vSphere infrastructure
  • Design security, manageability, and recoverability features for an enterprise

No comment because there's no interaction with ExitCertified . So nothing that I don't like

Very good and easy system, Azure pass registration process should be slightly better with not having to get a new outlook account.

Awesome instructor with in-depth knowledge and the ability to present in a meaningful & understandable way. This course will provide a solid foundation within DataStage that can be used immediately. I highly recommend this course.

Classes are great but i feel the course timeline is too short and hence the topics are rushed up to complete on time.

It Interesting but the lab environment is kinda slow. I prefer to just have lab instructions since I did all my lab on my own machine
