This intensive three-day training course qualifies you with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to design a VMware vSphere® 6.5 virtual infrastructure. With this course you will be able to follow a proven way to design a virtualization solution that ensures availability, manageability, performance, recoverability, and security, and that uses VMware best practices.

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

  • Estimate the business and application requirements of the current environment
  • Evaluate the design choices and best-practice recommendations
  • Apply a framework to a design
  • Successfully create a design that ensures availability, manageability, performance, recoverability, and security
  • Effectively design the virtual data center for an enterprise
  • Effectively design the core management infrastructure for an enterprise
  • Effectively design the storage and networking infrastructures for an enterprise
  • Effectively design the compute infrastructure for an enterprise
  • Effectively design virtual machines to run applications in a vSphere infrastructure
  • Effectively design security, management, and recoverability features for an enterprise

  • Experienced system integrators and consultants responsible for designing and deploying vSphere environments
This course requires completion of the following prerequisites:

  • VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.5]
  • VMware vSphere: Optimize and Scale [V6.5]

Class timings are 9:30 am to 5:30 pm(IST)

Our live online classes are conducted in the same manner as our classroom classes, using the same manuals and lab equipment. Just as in our classroom classes, each online student is assigned a set of remote lab equipment including an ESXi host and various pre-configured Virtual machines, as the specific class they are attending requires. The students connect to the lab environment using Microsoft’s Remote Display Protocol (RDP) in order to perform the lab exercises. The vast majority of our online students find the class experience equivalent to or better than a classroom delivered class.

Exams can be taken in any PearsonVUE centres in India. Validity is 1 year from date of purchase.

All our trainers are VMware Certified Instructors. Our representatives will share the trainer profile once you start interacting with them.

Class will be 50:50 mixture of theory and practical. You will get class id, labs soft copy of courseware and participation certificate from VMware.

We accept all modes of payment. If you are being nominated by your organization, your organization need to release PO before the course start date. If you are an individual you can pay through credit / debit cards, online transfer (RTGS/NEFT) to our account 7 days prior to the course start date
