This three-day training course equips you with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to design a VMware vSphere® 7 virtual infrastructure. You follow a proven approach to design a virtualization solution that ensures availability, manageability, performance, recoverability, and security, and that uses VMware best practices. This course discusses the benefits and risks of available design alternatives and provides information to support making sound design decisions

  • Given a case study, you practice your design skills by working with peers on a design project.

Skills Gained

By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:

  • Identify the business objectives for the vSphere environment
  • Identify business requirements, constraints, assumptions, and risks for all layers in the vSphere environment
  • Apply a framework to a design
  • Analyze design choices and best-practice recommendations
  • Create a design that ensures availability, manageability, performance, recoverability, and security
  • Design the core management infrastructure for an enterprise
  • Design the virtual data center for an enterprise
  • Design the compute infrastructure for an enterprise
  • Design the storage and networking infrastructures for an enterprise
  • Design virtual machines to run applications in a vSphere infrastructure
  • Design security, manageability, and recoverability features for an enterprise

The method of training and delivery via Zoom was excellent. The Labs were very well planned and organized. The material could have been organized a little better.

Course trainer was excellent, content was well organized. However, labs should be instructor lead versus on your own. Much time is wasted for newbees in getting acclimated to tool set, AWS environment, navigating and setting up things to complete tasks. This was my third class and I was barely able to finish most of the labs. (The first 2 classes I only finished one lab exercise for the 2 together.)

Good class content, instructor and I am pleased with the delivery platform.

This class was put together very well and was set up better than most of in person (class) training that I attended. The instructor Karen was one the best instructors that ever had, she had complete control of the training environment.

Very informative, covered a lot of material. Would like more lab exercises.
