        OL 0141 VMware: Datacenter Virtualization with vSphere 5 Part 1 and 2

        One of the biggest developments in IT infrastructure management is the emergence of server virtualization. Virtualization is well suited for most business applications and is widely in use for all but the most demanding workloads. vSphere 5 is a virtualization software suite that can create virtual counterparts which correspond to, or replace, the physical components of a datacenter. Part One will discuss the physical and virtual relationships between components. VMware products, such as ESXi and vCenter Server are licensed differently depending on their implementation. Factors such as the size of your environment, the resource needs of VMs, and the vSphere features one wishes to utilize will determine license type, configuration, and costs. Part Two will discuss clustering concepts and requirements as well as demonstrate how to create and edit a cluster. This course can be used in preparation for the VCP5 exam. However, it is not sponsored or authorized by VMware so does not fully satisfy the training requirements to achieve the certification.

        Part One Target Audience:
        Anyone wishing to learn the fundamental features, functions, and capabilities of the VMware vSphere

        Part Two Target Audience:
        Systems engineers, system administrators, vSphere operators and support personnel working in virtualized server environments who have completed Datacenter Virtualization with vSphere 5: Part 1. Candidates who are seeking to learn about advanced features and configuration options available in the vSphere Enterprise product.
