Seminar / Kurs
von brainymotion AG
This five-day course features intensive hands-on training that focuses on installing, configuring, and managing VMware vSphere 6.5, which includes VMware ESXi 6.5 and VMware vCenter Server 6.5. This course prepares you to administer a vSphere infrastructure for an organization of any size. It is the foundation for most other VMware technologies in the software-defined data center.
