Course Overview
Hi everyone! My name is Ryan Schultz, and welcome to my course, vSphere Data Center Virtualization: Performance Tuning, Optimization, and Upgrades. I am an Enterprise Architect at a national cloud services and hybrid IT provider. This course will teach you to optimize a vSphere environment, not just at the virtualization hosting level, but also the guest level while keeping everything up to date and secure. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include exploration of resource management, how to monitor the virtualization platform and guest performance, configuring I/O controls, like NIOC, network I/O control, and SIOC, storage I/O control, and finally, upgrading vSphere components. By the end of this course, you'll know how to perform resource management, monitor the different pieces of the virtualization platform and guest performance, what and how to configure NIOC and SIOC, and lastly, upgrade the different components of the vSphere environment. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the basics of VMware vSphere, storage and network concepts, as well as operating system management. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn advanced concepts and virtualization on VMware with the vSphere Data Center Virtualization: Performance Tuning, Optimization, and Upgrades course at Pluralsight.
