Course Overview
My name is David Davis, and I'm honored to be your instructor for this course. I've created video training on VMware vSphere since it was called ESX Server 3, back when I implemented it in a production data center and simply fell in love with the technology. VMware vSphere powers the majority of the on‑premises data centers in the world today, and vSphere administrators are highly sought after in the job market. With the launch of vSphere 7, VMware has unleashed a tremendous amount of innovation, so it's a great time to be learning vSphere. By the end of this course, you will have learned how to create and configure VMware vSphere clusters, including High Availability, Distributed Resource Scheduler, Distributed Power Management, Storage Distributed Resource Scheduler, and VMware Fault Tolerance, including a lot of cool new vSphere 7 features. You'll also learn the magic of VMware vMotion and Storage vMotion. And finally, you'll see for yourself how easy it is to keep your clusters up to date using the new vSphere lifecycle manager. So buckle up, grab a beverage, and join me on this adventure into VMware vSphere 7.
