Are you looking for VMware vSphere Training? Do you want to learn from an experienced trainer who makes complex concepts simple and easy to understand? Do you need to prepare for the VMware Certified Technical Associate (VCTA) exam?I am a VMware Certified Instructor who has taught thousands of hours of live training directly for VMware. Most lectures in this course are 5 – 15 minutes long. A few deeper topics are slightly longer. There are over 40 real-life demos of tasks being performed in a vSphere 8 environment using the new HTML5 vSphere Client.VMware vSphere is everywhere. Non-virtualized datacenters are a thing of the past, and in order to stay relevant you must understand vSphere. This course is ideal for anyone who wants to learn vSphere, including absolute beginners.Topics covered in this course include (but are not limited to):vSphere EssentialsLicensingInstalling ESXi and vCenterBasic ESXi Configuration and ManagementContent LibrariesLifeCycle ManagerNetworkingUnderstand vSphere Networking ConceptsConfigure vSphere Standard and Distributed SwitchesVirtual Switch FeaturesStorageVMFS, NFS 3, NFS 4.1iSCSIFC and FCoELUN Masking and ZoningvSANManaging Virtual MachinesTemplates and CloningVMware ToolsOVF and OVA TemplatesSnapshotsResource ManagementConfiguring vMotion RequirementsvMotion, Storage vMotion, and Shared-Nothing vMotionConfiguring DRS ClustersDRS Affinity Rules, Overrides, and advanced settingsDRS Automation Levels and Resource FragmentationResource PoolsAvailabilityvSphere High AvailabilityvCenter High AvailabilityAdmission ControlHeartbeat Datastores
