Course Number: VM-5.5


This 5-day class will teach you how to master your VMware virtual environment. From installation, configuration, operation, to security processes, and much more, you will conquer the management and automation of your virtual environment.
Initial labs focus on installation and configuration of stand-alone ESX servers.

As the class progresses, shared storage, networking and centralized management are introduced. The class then continues on to more advanced topics including resource balancing, high availability, back up and recovery, troubleshooting and more. Disaster recovery, rapid deployment, hot migration and workload consolidation are also covered.

This class is unique in its approach; which is to identify common IT pain points and then clearly explain and demonstrate how virtualization delivers immediate, tangible benefits (e.g.: reduced capital and operational costs, greater consistency, responsiveness, reduced administration, server consolidation, etc). Each topic is presented from the perspective of delivering key business and/or economic value, not just the technical or mechanical aspects of the software.

By the end of the class, attendees will have learned the benefits, skills, mechanics and best practices of virtualization. Attendees will be able to design, implement, deploy, configure, monitor, manage, troubleshoot and secure VMware vSphere 5.5.

This course does not qualify you to take the VMware Certification Exam.
