Course Description

This course explores a design methodology, criteria, and approach for designing a VMware vSphere™ 4 virtual datacenter architecture consisting of VMware ESX™/ESXi 4 and VMware vCenter™ Server 4. This course, by discussing the benefits and risks of available design alternatives, provides information which supports making sound design decisions. This course also provides an opportunity to practice your design skills by working with peers on a design project.

At the end of this course, you will have applied the design methodology, criteria, and approach to create a vSphere design based on one or more case studies. You will also:

  • Identify design goals, requirements, and constraints
  • Identify useful information for making design decisions
  • Recognize and analyze best practice recommendations
  • Analyze alternative design choices
  • Identify risks
  • Work in a design team on a design project
