Overview/Description
vSphere 6.0 Part Two is a continuation of course 1. In course 1, we focused upon the basic understanding of virtualization, its installation and management within the confines of a small environment. In course two we expand out into a larger environment and explore some of the advanced feature that provide business continuity solutions. We also explore advanced resource management, vSphere monitoring, design frameworks, and upgrade management within this course.
