ESXLab is pleased to offer our advanced VMware vSphere 6.5 Optimize, Upgrade, Troubleshoot course book set. This book set specifically developed for people who want to take their VMware skills to the next level. We go deeper into ESXi host deployment, configuration, upgrades. We show you how to deploy vCenter Server Appliance from scratch; how to back it up, recover it, upgrade it and more. This class includes chapters on storage connectivity, VMFS management, how to assign and verify VMs reside on appropriate storage and how to create and manage Storage Clusters. We also cover both failure recovery and load balanced clusters. VM continuous availability is covered in our Fault Tolerance changer. And enterprise networking topics are covered in our chapter on Distributed Virtual Switches.

Our goal is to make you the best VMware vSphere 6.5 administrator possible.
