Description

Are you new to virtualization? In this course, Virtualization in the Real World, you will learn foundational knowledge of how to run a single workload across multiple virtualization hypervisors. First, you will see how to run the same virtual machine on Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware vSphere, VMware Fusion, VirtualBox, and the public cloud with Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2. Then, you will learn how to convert virtual machines to be run on different hypervisors. Next, you will discover how to create virtual machines. Finally, you will explore how to configure virtual resources, and perform real world virtual infrastructure administration. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of the basics of how server, network, and storage virtualization come together so you can run workloads in real world data centers.

Course Overview
Virtualization has the power to make both you and your company more agile, scalable, and efficient. I've published numerous courses on how different forms of virtualization work in theory. Now it's time to see how it all comes together. In this course, Virtualization in the Real World, you'll learn how a virtualization administrator can use multiple hypervisors to run workloads on the desktop, in the data center, and in the cloud. My name is David Davis, and I'm honored to be your instructor for Virtualization in the Real World. Watch this course, and I'll walk you through a scenario at the Wired Brain Coffee Company where they need you to test their custom workload across VMware Fusion, Oracle VirtualBox, Hyper-V in Windows 10, VMware vSphere, and Microsoft Hyper-V in Windows Server. That's right, five different hypervisors in one video. As we migrate the workload from hypervisor to hypervisor, we'll be testing what it's like to administer and configure virtual machines on each. Finally, we'll attempt to migrate this workload to the public cloud on AWS. You'll see how AWS Server Migration Service works and helps you to make the jump to the cloud. If you haven't yet watched my course entitled, Virtualization: The Big Picture, I recommend that you watch that course first to give you a solid foundation for this course on Virtualization in the Real World. By the end of this course, you'll have a solid understanding of virtualization across the desktop, the data center, and the cloud. So buckle up, grab a beverage, and join me on this adventure into the world of virtualization.
