☑ Create a vSphere 6 lab on a computer using VMware Workstation 12
Virtualization and cloud computing are the future of our IT infrastructure. It's important for system administrators who want to succeed to have a strong foundation in virtualization technologies, particularly in the popular virtual environment VMware vSphere, including the ESXi hypervisor and vCenter Server. With vSphere, you can create virtual machines that bypass the need for additional expensive hardware and provide features not available on a physical system a perfect setup for exploring new technologies and setting up test environments. This course teaches the basics of installing, configuring, and maintaining vSphere 6, including installation of the ESXi hypervisor and vCenter Server using a pre-created environment called AutoLab. Following lab creation, in this course introduces the core components of vSphere (ESXi and vCenter) and shows how to configure storage and networking. Finally, he runs through some typical virtual-machine management tasks, such as creating a virtual machine manually vs. creating one with templates and clones, working with snapshots, and performing a vMotion migration.

The tutor clearly explains the infrastructure of VMware and also which resources can have download for learning such as MyVmware from Official site.
The course is very good if you wanted to start to learn visualization technology this is best option to have it. i have setup locally VMware LAB and make doing practice with all feature like HA,Datastore,SAN connectivity ,Vmotion and lot others Thank you
Nicely done if someone wanted to setup VMware Lab locally very good for beginner who wish to learn VMware as well
Excellent course for those who learn and do setup of VMware locally on their laptop and do all labs and practice.
Nice course for system admin who want to setup VI infrastructure lab on his laptop / PC .I would recommend to go with this to polish your skill set. thanks instructor.
The instructions were a little hard to follow, many times the speech did not match the current screen leaving you wondering where he was at. the presenter would say what he was doing while the actions on the screen were delayed making things harder to understand.
