Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week introduced its "Learning VMWare vSphere 5.1 Administration Tutorial," a course explaining the initial installation and set-up of this industry-leading virtualization system.
VSphere allows business to transform their IT infrastructure into a private cloud which can then bridge to public clouds, providing an easy-access platform for any application.
InfiniteSkills' Learning VMware ESXi & vSphere 5.1 Administration Video Training - DVD provides an introduction to many key concepts in installing and configuring this sophisticated and complex virtualization system primarily in a Windows environment, covering how to perform an initial set-up for using vSphere in a development and testing lab where administrators can determine the best set up for a particular application.
Course author Glen Martin is an IT professional with almost 20 years' experience working for government and private sector solutions. He currently splits time between training and consulting and has spent the last five years architecting, administering, and troubleshooting with VMWare solutions in a variety of large and small network environments.
Martin's practical experience as an architect and administrator of vSphere systems, combined with his extensive experience as a trainer, come together in this course to create a clear, easy-to-follow, guide for performing an initial install and setup of the VMware ESXi & vSphere platform, teaching many important concepts in the vSphere's structure and capabilities along the way.
After providing an overview of virtualization and the installation process, including how to install and configure ESXi and use ESXi shell commands, Martin explores vSphere client installation and how to manage hosts using the vSphere client.
From there, Martin introduces networking in vSphere, explaining how to add port groups and VMKernel ports, followed by an overview of network traffic management.
Additional chapters include a look at storage configuration in vSphere and how to create virtual machines in a Windows operating environment.
As students cover the bases of vSphere installation, Martin covers several other key topics, including gauging system performance, using graphs and charts in vCenter, understanding management tasks, and using reservations and limits to adapt workloads to the available server environment, along with many other important concepts.
"The course objective," Martin says, "is to provide an overview of how to install and configure a vSphere 5.1 appropriate for a development and testing lab."
