Overview:
This three-day 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 ensures availability, manageability, performance, recoverability, and security, and that uses VMware best practices.

This 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.
