This training course, for experienced VMware vSphere® personnel, teaches advanced skills for configuring and maintaining a highly available and scalable virtual infrastructure. The course is based on VMware vSphere® ESXi™ 5.0 and VMware® vCenter Server™ 5.1.

This course prepares the student for the VMware Certified Advanced Professional – Datacenter Administration [V5] certification (VCAP5-DCA). Completion of this course also satisfies the prerequisite for taking the VMware Certified Professional 5 exam.

Kurso nauda

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

  • Configure and manage ESXi networking and storage for a large and sophisticated enterprise.
  • Manage changes to the vSphere environment.
  • Optimize the performance of all vSphere components.
  • Troubleshoot operational faults and identify their root causes.
  • Use VMware vSphere® ESXi™ Shell and VMware vSphere® Management Assistant (vMA) to manage vSphere.
  • Use VMware vSphere® Auto Deploy™ to provision ESXi hosts.

Note: About one-third of the VMware vSphere: What’s New [V5.1] course content is repeated in this course. The scalability opics in VMware vSphere: Fast Track [V5.1] are repeated in this course.
