VMware vSphere: Design and Deploy Fast Track Training Course Description

This VMware vSphere: Design and Deploy Fast Track Training course equips you with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to design and deploy a VMware vSphere® 6.0 virtual infrastructure. You follow a proven approach to design and deploy a virtualization solution that is available, scalable, manageable, and secure. This VMware vSphere: Design and Deploy Fast Track Training v6 course discusses the benefits and risks of available design alternatives and provides information to support making sound design decisions. In this VMware vSphere: Design and Deploy Fast Track Training v6 course, you practice your design skills by working with peers on a design project. You also deploy components of a completed vSphere design. This course is based on VMware ESXi™ 6.0 and VMware vCenter Server™ 6.0.
