Evaluating Your vSphere Environment for Best Practices and Security

by David Davis

VMware vSphere is the most widely used enterprise-grade virtualization solution in the world. This course will teach you how to secure and optimize the performance of your vSphere infrastructure, leverage advanced features, and meet best practices.

What you'll learn

VMware vSphere is by far the most used hypervisor in enterprise data centers around the world, but too often it's not implemented with the best practices that it should be, resulting in poor performance, downtime, or insecurity. In this course, Evaluating Your vSphere Environment for Best Practices and Security, you'll learn how to assess a vSphere infrastructure for best practices. This will include how to right-size your virtual machine CPU and memory, how to analyze the configuration of advanced features like vSphere Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS), vMotion, and VMware virtual SAN (VSAN), SDRS, and HA for best practices, and how to secure your vSphere infrastructure so that it won't get hacked. By the end of this course, you'll be able to analyze any vSphere infrastructure, quickly identify what isn't right, and learn how to configure it correctly for optimum performance and security.
