VMware NSX: Install, Configure, Manage [6.4] Training & Certification Course

Overview

VMware NSX: Install, Configure, Manage [6.4], comprehensive, fast-paced training course presents VMware NSX as a part of the software-defined data centre. You will learn how to use logical switching in NSX to virtualize your switching environment. The course also details logical routing to enable you to dynamically route between different virtual environments. You will also learn how to use gateway services, firewall configurations, and security services to help secure and optimize your NSX environment. Access to a software-defined data centre environment.

Course Prerequisites

  • Understanding of enterprise switching and routing
  • Knowledge of TCP/IP services
  • Experience with firewalls and firewall rule sets
  • Understanding of concepts presented in the VMware Data Center Virtualization Fundamentals course
  • Understanding of the concepts presented in the VMware Introduction to Network Virtualization with NSX course

 

Upon completion of this course, you will accomplish the following:-

  • Configure and deploy NSX components for management and control
  • Describe basic NSX layer 2 networking
  • Configure, deploy, and use logical switch networks
  • Configure and deploy NSX distributed router appliances to establish east-west connectivity
