VMware vSphere 6 is a powerful server virtualization platform that enables optimized performance, efficiency, and availability for your infrastructure. VMware vSphere Unlocked is a Learning Path provides the information that meets the objectives specified in the blueprint for the VMware VCP6-DCV certification program.
Packt’s Video Learning Paths are a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it.
This Learning Path will help you make most of the core features in vSphere. We will begin with exploring the essential concepts of virtualization like ESXi and DCUI interfaces. We will then move on to see how vSphere works with virtual machines. We will learn how to enhance and monitor vSphere performance by optimizing our virtual environment and solving performance issues. We will also see how to upgrade our legacy vSphere to the latest version along with troubleshooting techniques. This Learning Path will empower you to virtualize any application with ease as we will be covering all the latest enhancements and advanced functionalities of vSphere hypervisor, virtual machines, vCenter Server virtual storage, and security.
By the end of the Learning Path, you will gain expertise in VMware vSphere 6 and virtualize any application with ease for your enterprise.
