VMware NSX: Install Configure Manage [6.4]

Description

Duration: 5 Days

During this five-day boot camp students will learn how to use logical switching in NSX to virtualize your switching environment. This boot camp will also detail logical routing to enable the student to route between different virtual environments. How to use gateway services, firewall configurations, and security services to secure and optimize an NSX environment.

 

Upon completion of this Boot Camp, Students will be able to:

  • Configure and deploy NSX components for management and control
  • Describe basic NSX layer 2 networking
  • Configure, deploy, and use logical switch networks
  • Configure and deploy NSX distributed router appliances to establish east-west connectivity
  • Configure and deploy VMware NSX Edge services gateway appliances to establish north-south connectivity
  • Configure NSX L2 bridging
  • Configure and use all main features of the NSX Edge services gateway
  • Configure NSX Edge firewall rules to restrict network traffic
  • Configure NSX distributed firewall rules to restrict network traffic
  • Configure service Composer Policies
  • Configure an identity-aware firewall
  • Describe NSX data security
  • Use the cross-vCenter NSX feature

 

This course is intended for:

  • Experienced System Administrators
  • Experienced system Network Administrators

 

*****To gain the VMware NSX certification, students must take and pass VMware Certified Professional 6- Network Virtualization (VCP6-NV) *****
