This is an in-depth introductory course on virtualization with VMware vSphere 6. In this course, you'll explore virtual and physical networking. Virtual networking is used to provide Ethernet and TCP/IP networking to VMs. Physical networking is used by both ESXi and VMs to communicate with physical network peers.
ESXi can use file shares for Virtual Machines, for backups and as a repository for install media images or to hold VM clones or templates. We will see the file choices ESXi supports, how to connect and disconnect from file shares, and best practices for achieving both high performance and redundancy.
You will also learn how to build virtual machines. You will learn about the features and capabilities of the virtual hardware layer, how to install a guest OS into your new VM, the purpose and benefits of VMware Tools, and how to optimize your VMs for best performance and lowest resource overhead.
