Description

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.
