VMware vSphere 6 - Bootcamp

Denna accelererade vSphere 6-kurs ger dig kunskaperna till att installera, konfigurera och handha en vSphere 6-miljö med ESXi 6 och vCenter Server 6 - Samt även avancerade färdigheter i att underhålla, driftsäkra en skalbar infrastruktur.

Kursen kombinerar innehållet från de två kurserna Install, Configure, Manage respektive Optimize and Scale. Det betyder att innehåll motsvarande tio arbetsdagar körs på fem. Tempot är därför högre, dagarna längre och förkunskapskraven extra viktiga. Kursen levereras i London.
