This extended course takes you from introductory to advanced VMware vSphere® 8 management skills. Building on the installation and configuration content from our best-selling course, you develop advanced skills needed to manage and maintain a highly available and scalable virtual infrastructure. Through a mix of lecture and handson labs, you install, configure, and manage vSphere 7. You explore the features that build a foundation for a truly scalable infrastructure and discuss when and where these features have the greatest effect. This course prepares you to administer a vSphere infrastructure for an organization of any size using vSphere 8, which includes VMware ESXi™ 8 and VMware vCenter Server® 8.

Course objectives

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

  • Install and configure ESXi hosts
  • Deploy and configure vCenter
  • Use the vSphere client to create the vCenter inventory and assign roles to vCenter users
  • Configure vCenter High Availability
  • Create and configure virtual networks using vSphere standard switches and distributed switches
  • Create and configure datastores using storage technologies supported by vSphere
  • Use the vSphere client to create virtual machines, templates, clones, and snapshots
  • Configure and manage a VMware Tools Repository
  • Create content libraries for managing templates and deploying virtual machines
  • Manage virtual machine resource use
  • Migrate virtual machines with vSphere vMotion and vSphere Storage vMotion
  • Create and configure a vSphere cluster that is enabled with vSphere High Availability and vSphere Distributed Resource Scheduler
