Skill Level Beginner
- Hello, my name is Brandon Neill. I'm a former VMware Network Escalation Engineer, and I've been working with VMware and teaching VMware courses for the past eight years. Learning VMware vSphere 6.5 will provide the information necessary to create a full vSphere 6.5 lab environment, running on a Gigabyte BRIX Mini-PC. After the initial lab creation, using Image Builder and PowerCLI, I'll explain the basics of how the vSphere components work and walk you through the configuration of networking and storage, including VSAN.
I'll go through creating a virtual machine and using templates and clones, and finally I will cover using vMotion and Snapshots. After the completion of this course, you'll have a running VMware vSphere 6.5 environment for use for exam prep, or to improve your knowledge and experience with vSphere. Let's get started.
