Course Overview

This five-day course provides hands-on training to equip students with a range of skills, from performing routine VMware vSphere® 7 administrative tasks to complex vSphere operations and configurations. Through lab-based activities, students are immersed in real-life situations faced by VMBeans, a fictitious company. These situations expose students to real-life scenarios faced by companies that are building and scaling their virtual infrastructure.

Approximately 90% of the class is application-focused and taught through labs. The course aligns fully with the VMware Certified Advanced Professional – Data Center Virtualization Deploy exam objectives. 

Course Objectives

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

  • Configure and manage complex storage solutions in a vSphere environment (including NFS, iSCSI)
  • Configure and manage complex, scalable vSphere networking operations (vSphere Standard Switch and Distributed Switches)
  • Deploy, manage, and optimize virtual machines (advanced configuration, content library, latency-sensitive workloads, and more)
  • Manage business continuity and operations in your vSphere environment (VMware vCenter® Server Appliance file-based backup, VMware vCenter Server® profiles, host profiles)
  • Plan and implement increased vSphere security (use a Key Provider, VM Encryption, CPU scheduler remediations)
  • Troubleshoot the vSphere environment
  • Use VMware vSphere® Lifecycle Manager to upgrade to VMware ESXi hosts and virtual machines (VUM, image-based clusters)
  • Implement vSphere cluster solutions (Cluster QuickStart wizard, VMware vSphere® Distributed Resource Scheduler, VMware vSphere® High Availability, VMware vSAN)
