  • Duration 18 HOURS

vSphere 6.0 Part Two is a continuation of course 1. In course 1, we focused upon the basic understanding of virtualization, its installation and management within the confines of a small environment. In course two we expand out into a larger environment and explore some of the advanced feature that provide business continuity solutions. We also explore advanced resource management, vSphere monitoring, design frameworks, and upgrade management within this course.

    Special Note

    Live Learning is similar to traditional instructor-led technical training, but rather than gathering students in one physical location, instructor presentations are webcast to participants anywhere via the internet. These presentations are also available as recordings for on-demand viewing and re-viewing.
    Live Learning courses contain:

    • Multiple instances of real-time virtual class sessions (course-dependent) led by a team of expert instructors (Live sessions)
    • Recorded sessions (Encore Modules) for on-demand viewing or review of Live sessions content
    • A rich set of supporting materials that stays available to the student for 1 year and can include Student Guides, Hands-On Labs, Class Notes, and a variety of assessments
