Description

Network virtualization is used by server virtualization in the datacenter, it’s used by desktop virtualization on your laptop and, yes it’s used more and more to virtualize the functions of costly and complex network gear. Like server virtualization, network virtualization brings with it business agility, administrative efficiency, and cost savings. In this course, Fundamentals of Network Virtualization, you’ll see how you are able to do in software what, previously, was only possible with expensive routers and switches. Even better, once virtualized, you’ll gain a ton of efficiency and advanced functionality. First, you'll discover why you need network virtualization, what network virtualization is, and use cases for network virtualization. Next, you'll explore the benefits of network virtualization, including how you can achieve agility, efficiency, scalability, and availability with network virtualization. Finally, you'll see network virtualization in action. By the end of this course, you’ll have a solid understanding of the fundamentals of network virtualization.

Course Overview
Think about it for a minute, what if you could do in software what traditionally has required very expensive and complex networking hardware? Yes, I'm talking about network virtualization. You'll learn all about it in my latest course, Fundamentals of Network Virtualization. My name is David Davis, and I'm honored to be your instructor for this course. I've been writing, teaching, and speaking about enterprise technologies and cloud computing for over 10 years now. During that time, I've created over 50 courses, and this is one of my favorite courses yet. Network virtualization is used by server virtualization in the data center, and it's used more and more to virtualize the functions of costly and complex networking gear. Like server virtualization, network virtualization brings with it business agility, administrative efficiency, and cost savings. You'll be able to do in software what previously was only possible with expensive routers and switches. Even better, once virtualized, you'll gain a ton of efficiency and advanced functionality. This is very cool stuff. Watch this course, and you'll learn exactly what network virtualization is, how it works, and see it in action across multiple solutions. By the end of the course, you'll have a solid understanding of the fundamentals of network virtualization, and you don't need to know anything to get started. So get ready, and join me on this short adventure into the world of network virtualization.
