VMware vSphere: Optimize and Scale (v6.0)
5 Days
VMware vSphere: Optimize and Scale is designed for experienced VMware vSphere® users. It teaches advanced skills for configuring and maintaining a highly available and scalable virtual infrastructure. Through a mix of lecture and hands-on labs, you will configure and optimize the vSphere features that build a foundation for a truly scalable infrastructure and discuss when and where these features have the greatest effect.  The course is based on VMware ESXi™ 6 and VMware vCenter Server™ 6.
By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:
Configure and manage ESXi networking and storage for a large and sophisticated enterprise
Manage changes to the vSphere environment
Optimize the performance of all vSphere components
Harden the vSphere environment against security threats
Troubleshoot operational faults and identify their root causes
Use VMware vSphere® ESXi™ Shell and VMware vSphere® Management Assistant to manage vSphere
Use VMware vSphere® Auto Deploy™ to provision ESXi hosts
Creating Do Loops
Creating While/Wend Loops
Using VBA Functions
Viewing the Object Browser
Using the InputBox() Function
Understanding the MsgBox() Function
Using String Functions
Using Date Functions
Creating UserForms
Designing a Form
Anyone who is ready to take their understanding of vSphere to a deeper level and learn how to use advanced features and controls will greatly benefit from this course.
