Overview/Description
vCenter Server's configuration and management capabilities include features such as VM templates, VM customization, rapid provisioning and deployment of VMs, role-based access controls, and fine-grained resource allocation controls. However, vCenter Server also provides the tools for the more advanced features of vSphere such as vMotion, vSphere Distributed Resource Scheduler, vSphere High Availability, and vSphere Fault Tolerance. Prior to administration and management, however, one should first become familiar with the managed inventory provided by vCenter Server and its associated objects. This course reviews vCenter Server's datacenter items, inventory considerations, as well as inventory views and options.

Target Audience
Anyone wishing to learn the fundamental features, functions, and capabilities of the VMware vSphere product suite collection of products in order to provide a full array of enterprise virtualization functionality; systems engineers, system administrators, vSphere operators and support personnel, and ESXi operators and support personnel. A good understanding of system administration on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 or Microsoft Server 2008 operating systems experience would be of benefit. Experience equivalent to or greater than CompTIA Network+ and with Linux Server operating systems is strongly recommended.
