Have you ever wondered how to set-up your own VMware vSphere infrastructure? What components are necessary for building advanced vSphere LAB? I have designed this course to cover all aspects of your LAB deployment from the scratch.

what is covered

We will start with basic information regarding hardware for your LAB. I will use dedicated server from third-party service provider to support our LAB. We will deploy virtual router that will be used for connecting your LAB to outside, public network and provide several networking features for our LBA. You will also learn how to setup your supporting Microsoft environment for your LAB where you will learn how to setup your Active Directory and iSCSI storage server that will host our shared storage. Then we will work on the configuration of our master ESXi server in terms of advanced networking and storage. And finally, we will setup several virtualized ESXi servers that will together with VMware vCenter server forms your advanced LAB.

I have tried to be as practical as possible. I will show you everything in real world. No PowerPoint how-to but real hands-on experience with the configuration itself.
