This course takes you from introductory to advanced VMware vSphere management skills. Starting with the knowledge required to install and configure, you will also develop the advanced skills needed to manage and maintain a highly available and scalable virtual infrastructure. You will explore the features that build a foundation for a truly scalable infrastructure, and discuss when and where these features have the greatest effect. This course prepares you to administer a vSphere infrastructure for an organization of any size using vSphere 6.5/6.7, which includes VMware ESXi 6.5/6.7 and VMware vCenter Server 6.5/6.7.

[MUSIC] In this video we'd like to take a few minutes to tell you what you can expect in the upcoming VMware VCP 65DCV Series. And here to tell us a little bit about that is, Adam Gordon. Hello Adam, what can we expect to see? >> Well, we can expect to talk about anything and everything related to virtualization and data center virtualization from VMware's perspective. We're gonna be taking a look at the point in time, in which we are putting this episode and this whole series together for you. The 6.7 release of vSphere and vCenter, 6.7 update 1 is coming out as we're filming, but we will focus on 6.7. There will be essentially at some point in the future a .0, probably a 7.0 release, as we talked about in the show. But we are focusing on the latest information available at this time to prepare you for two exams, the Foundations exam, which you must take and pass, and then the VCPDCV 6.5 exam, which is taken as a second exam, to then together give you the VCPDCV certification, assuming you take and pass both. Join me here. Let me just quickly show you VMware's own website. We're on VMware.com/education and looking at the certification information. And they have certification information for all of the different areas and products, but we're focusing on data center virtualization. And the certification level we're focusing on is the VCP, right down here. So, let's just go over here. And when we open this up, we can see the VCP for 6.5 for Data Center Virtualization. And when we click on it, we're able to go right here to the main information page and I'm just gonna zoom in so you could see that a little bit more clearly. We can see that you have to get some experience, go through required training, pass the Foundations exam. I just wanna show you this, the Foundations exam, is in your case, the 6.5 exam cuz there are two versions currently in market and available. But the 6.5 exam, 105 minutes, 70 questions for only $125 US, depending on where you are in the world. The exam is scheduled and taken online via the interactive delivery system that VMware and Pearson have available. And then when you've taken and passed that, you go on to the Data Center Virtualization 6.5 exam, again 105 minutes, 70 questions, a little bit more money, 250 to schedule that exam. That one has to be done in a testing center, it's not done online. But just so you know, you can click through either or both of these CV associated exam numbers, the current language the exam is offered in and the certification, as well as the exam overview, which gives you the outline and the skills required to go in and prepare for the exam. We have built our show outline and the Word document I use around the ten exam objectives and all the sub-objectives in each of those categories from the exam information VMware makes available. And there are ten overall exam objective areas we cover. Everything from role-based access control and security, to how we set up and install the ESXi host operating system, how we take one or more hosts and manage them individually, but also collectively, using vSphere vCenter. And how we can then use vCenter either singly or in scaled out, enhanced link mode options to be able to create global spanning data infrastructure. We take a look at all sorts of additional capabilities and services available to us through vCenter. We look at storage DRS, distributor resource scheduling, and DRS in host clusters. We look at Vmotion and storage Vmotion. We look at the ability to use the Vsphere replication appliance, the backup and data center backup capabilities. We take a look at host management through both the Vsphere client, the newest HTML5 capable client, the web client, kind of the older client, as well as the host client, the third kind of client that is available. We also look extensively at the use of the command line with MTPuTTY, and use SSH enabled sessions to connect to and manage from the command line, or assess and document and configure both the host and the vCenter appliance, the Linux-based precompiled virtual machine that VMware puts out for us to run vCenter through. And we do all of our hands-on demonstration environments built around the use of the vCenter appliance. We bring up a two host solution with a functioning vCenter and all the backing storage necessary to be able to create those environments and demo through them. We also educate you about how you can go out and get all the software required from VMware directly for free for 60 days to be able to build your own environment, as long as you know where to go and how to take advantage of that. And we go over all the aspects required for you to be successful on both exams, the foundations and the DCVVCP exam. So a lot of exciting stuff ,but you obviously have to tune in for those episodes, because this one is just a little teaser that we give you to say, hey, come spend some time with us and see what we're gonna talk about. But out beyond this, you've got probably, I'm guessing, 30 to 40 hours of content in the library, once we're done with the show that you can go through, and lots of hands on, lots of handouts in terms of notes and supporting documentation that I provide to you during all of the episodes we discuss. And, of course, you get to spend time with this guy right over here who's gonna be my partner in crime for this conversation. Almost without exception, we're gonna see a couple of guest SMEs and experts coming in to spend some time with me from time to time, cuz Wes does have other duties here, he goes off and saves the world when nobody's looking. But other than that, he's gonna be here for 99% of the time that we spend here. >> [LAUGH] Just about. >> Just about all of it, but you're gonna see some really cool stuff, so we encourage you to come take a look. And, until you do, we're gonna say good bye. Look forward to seeing you in those episodes, see you soon. [SOUND]
