VMware vSphere: Advanced Administration Workshop [V7]

VMware vSphere: Advanced Administration Workshop [V7] Certification Training Course Overview

Enroll for the 5-day VMware vSphere: Advanced Administration Workshop [V7] certification training course from Koenig Solutions accredited by VMware. This course is designed to equip students with a range of skills: from performing routine VMware vSphere® 7 administrative tasks to complex vSphere operations and configurations.

Through a blend of hands-on labs and interactive lectures, you 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.

Target Audience:

  • System administrators
  • System engineer

Learning Objectives:

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Configure and manage complex storage solutions in a vSphere environment (including NFS, iSCSI, and so on)
  • 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, and so on)
  • Plan and implement increased vSphere security (use a Key Provider, VM Encryption, CPU scheduler remediations, and so on)
  • Troubleshoot the vSphere environment
  • Use VMware vSphere® Lifecycle Manager™ to upgrade to VMware ESXi™ hosts and virtual machines (VUM, image-based clusters, and so on)
  • Implement vSphere cluster solutions (Cluster QuickStart wizard, VMware vSphere® Distributed Resource Scheduler™, VMware vSphere® High Availability, VMware vSAN™, and so on)
  • Implement resource optimizations to streamline vSphere deployments
  • Create an advanced configuration of vCenter Server (including an identity source)
