This five-day course prepares you to lead VMware NSX design and deployment projects by providing an understanding of general design processes and frameworks. You look at the design and deployment considerations for network virtualisation as part of an overall software-defined data center design.
At the end of the course, students will be able to:
- understand and apply a design framework
- apply a design process for gathering requirements, constraints, assumptions, and risks
- analyse existing physical networking and security components, processes, and operations
- design a VMware vSphere virtual data center to support VMware NSX requirements
- design a physical network to support network virtualisation in a software-defined data center
- design logical network services
- design logical security services
- design a data center rack solution to support scalability and high availability
- identify management, monitoring, and operational tools for a proposed solution
- analyse the operational readiness of an organisation and perform a skills gap analysis
- analyse alternative design choices for risk mitigation.
Network professionals who have experience working with VMware NSX and are responsible for designing or deploying virtualised network architecture
This course requires understanding the concepts and topics presented in the following courses:
- VMware NSX: Install, Configure, Manage or VMware NSX: Troubleshooting and Operations
If you have not taken these courses, you should have equivalent experience.
Passing of the VCP6-NV and VCIX6-NV certification is recommended.
