Course Description

This five-day course features intensive hands-on training that focuses on installing, configuring, and managing
VMware vSphere 7, which includes VMware ESXi 7 and VMware vCenter Server 7. This course prepares you to
administer a vSphere infrastructure for an organization of any size. This course is the foundation for most of the
other VMware technologies in the software-defined data center.
