Course Overview:

VMware vSphere: Design Workshop Training Hands-on

This three-day VMware vSphere: Design Workshop training course equips you with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to design a VMware vSphere® 6.5 virtual infrastructure. You follow a proven approach to design a virtualization solution that is available, scalable, manageable, recoverable, and secure, and that uses VMware best practices.

This VMware vSphere: Design Workshop Training 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.
