In Detail

This course gives you an understanding of vSphere foundational concepts. 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 builds off my Clear and Simple vSphere Certified Associate videos, and gives you a deeper understanding of vSphere. You will learn about vSphere concepts such as VMFS and NFS storage, templates, cloning, vCenter and ESXi installation, Update Manager, and VSAN. I will also provide live demos of many common tasks that you may need to perform as a vSphere Administrator using the vSphere Web Client.This course will also help you prepare for the VMware vSphere 6.5 Foundations exam.
