Virtualization and cloud computing are the future of our IT infrastructure. It’s important for system administrators who want to succeed to have a strong foundation in virtualization technologies, particularly in the popular virtual environment VMware vSphere, including the ESXi hypervisor and vCenter Server. With VMware vSphere LAB, you can create virtual machines that bypass the need for additional expensive hardware and provide features not available on a physical system a perfect setup for exploring new technologies and setting up test environments. This course teaches the basics of installing, configuring, and maintaining VMware vSphere LAB, including installation of the ESXi hypervisor and vCenter Server. Following lab creation, this course introduces the core components of vSphere (ESXi and vCenter) and shows how to configure storage and networking.
