Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Mike Brown, and welcome to my course, Implementing Nutanix Networking and Security. I am a senior cloud instructor working for Firebrand Training based in the UK. Hyperconverged infrastructure has become a popular architecture for businesses today. Nutanix are a leader in hyperconverging infrastructure and cloud integration. In this course, we're going to focus on key networking security features that you will need to master to successfully deploy Nutanix cluster running Acropolis Hypervisor. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include Acropolis Hypervisor networking architecture and components, security components and best practices. We'll cover a detailed look at Nutanix Flow and an introduction to Nutanix Beam. By the end of this course, you'll have learned the skills needed to implement Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor networking and learn security best practices and features that will make you a valuable member of a Nutanix implementation team. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with implementing Nutanix clusters and Nutanix cluster administration. From here, you should feel comfortable diving deeper into Nutanix with courses on Nutanix Implementation, Nutanix Security, and Nutanix Public Cloud Integration. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Nutanix network and security with the Implementing Nutanix Networking and Security course, at Pluralsight.
