Hi everyone. My name is Josh Coen, and welcome to my course, What's New in vSphere 6. 5. I'm a cloud architect at Sirius Computer Solutions, I've been working with VMware for about 12 years, I'm a VCP, VCAP, and VCDX. VMware vSphere is pound for pound the best virtualization platform on the market today. This course is designed to get you quickly up to speed on the latest and greatest features for version 6. 5 of VMware's flagship product, VMware vSphere. Some of the major topics that we're going to cover include what's new in vCenter 6. 5, what's new with VMware HA, or high availability, and DRS, and the elimination of Windows as a requirement for all vSphere components. By the end of this course, you'll know all the major features and enhancements that are included with the vSphere 6. 5. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with virtualization and have a basic understanding of VMware vSphere. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about the latest and greatest vSphere features with the What's New in vSphere 6. 5 course, at Pluralsight.
