New VMware vSphere Course: Optimize and Scale [V5.0]

VMware recently launched the first higher-level training class for vSphere 5, titled vSphere: Optimize and Scale [v5.0].

This training course teaches advanced skills for configuring and maintaining a highly available and scalable virtual infrastructure. The course is based on VMware vSphere ESXi 5.0 and VMware vCenter Server 5.0.  The course prepares the student for the VMware Certified Advanced Professional – Data Center Administration [V5] certification (VCAP5-DCA). Completion of this course also satisfies the prerequisite for taking the VMware Certified Professional 5 exam.

In all, it is a 5-day class covering a number of high-level aspects and features of vSphere 5, including how to:
  • Understand the esxcli and vicfg commands and important ESXi and vCenter Server log files
  • Understand distributed switch features such as PVLANs, Network I/O Control, port mirroring, and NetFlow
  • Configure storage multipathing, understand VAAI and VASA, explain policy-driven storage, and configure Storage DRS and Storage I/O Control
  • Understand performance guidelines for DRS clusters, resource pools, and resource allocation settings, and troubleshoot vSphere cluster errors
  • Use Image Builder to create an ESXi installation image, use Host Profiles to manage ESXi configuration compliance
  • Use vCenter Server Linked Mode to manage multiple vCenter Server inventories
  • Understand VMware vSphere PowerCLI and customize scripts
  • Use vSphere Auto Deploy to provision ESXi hosts
  • Understand CPU scheduler and other features that impact CPU performance
