Join Russell Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of VMware vSphere: Upgrade a Deployment to vSphere 6.5.
- [Instructor] So we're all done upgrading our environment. What's next? Well, first I want you to focus on learning the version. You may have moved from 6.0 to 6.5, 5.5 to 6.5, whatever version you're moving from is greatly different than 6.5. 6.5 has a lot of changes in it. So, take some time to get those down. Also, test the environment. I want you to take this into your lab environment before you ever think about going into production.
Take the time, test, make sure you get it down. Now if you're looking for other content to maybe master or go down the path of learning, take a look at NSX. That's virtual networking from Vmware. Also, maybe the iCloud suite. Check out some of the other technologies they have there. And if you want to stay in the vSphere world, take a look at some of the advanced clustering options. That will really help you in your environment if you want to grow, if you want to scale, if you want to look at putting into place HA or DRS.
Take a deep dive into clustering. It's a really interesting topic. So, I hope you've enjoyed the videos and I hope to see you again in another course.
