vSphere Configuration and Management version 5.0
VMware Training Overview

vSphere Configuration and Management will show the students most of the new features within vSphere while still giving them the backdrop of the older virtualization technologies. This class gives them a good base of knowledge on how to install and configure vSphere in an enterprise environment.

The vSphere Configuration and Management class will provide the administrators who are new to virtualization and those who have experience with virtualization with a solid understanding of VMware virtualization. The student will have plenty of opportunity to install and configure the various features of vSphere. The class is approximately 50% lecture and 50% demo and lab. The class will show some of the new features of vSphere while still teaching the critical pieces of VMware virtualization that are not new to vSphere 5.0. There is no expected history of virtualization experience or training for the students. Experience with networks and various operating systems will be very beneficial.
