Description

The goal of this course is to equip consulting professionals with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to achieve competence in designing a VMware vSphere® 5 virtual infrastructure. Given an organization's constraints and requirements, the infrastructure should be available, scalable, manageable, and secure while meeting the organization's business objectives. The course is based on VMware ESXi™ and VMware vCenter™ Server 5.

This course discusses the benefits and risks of available design alternatives and provides information to support making sound design decisions. This course also provides an opportunity to practice your design skills by working with peers on a design project.
