Description

Introduction to vSphere data protection and managing firewalls is a free online course that has been specifically designed to introduce you to vSphere's multiple applications. The course highlights the three virtual switch types in version 5.x. You will learn about Cisco Discovery protocol and how to manage its capabilities. We will introduce you to the features and functions of vSphere Distributed Virtual Switches (VDS). And did you know that VDS has newer features in version 5.1? Get ready to learn about these technologies and the steps involved in creating VDS. The networking CLI commands and modified vSwitch properties are also key concepts to understand in this course. We will also extensively cover the different storage APIs in vSphere. You will expand your knowledge on multipathing with iSCSI software and learn the two ways to discover iSCSI targets and how to configure jumbo frames. 

This course will explain the architecture of fibre channels and how to scan fibre channel LUNs. You will also learn about the functions of Virtual Machine File System (VMFS-5), as well as new updates in version 5.5. It is possible to upgrade an existing volume from VMFS-3 to VMFS-5. However, you will need to learn about the advantages and disadvantages of the process. We will also highlight the relationship between the Network Attached Storage (NAS) and ESXi. Are you aware that storage capabilities are of two types? Get ready to learn about their functions and differences. We will show you how to indicate the relevance of vSphere's Storage API for Storage Awareness (VASA). Datastore clusters are required parts of Storage DRS (SDRS). You will learn about how they work with SDRS. We will also highlight the features, as well as installation steps for vSphere Data Protection version 5.5.5.

Furthermore, we will provide you with an overview of vSphere Replication (VR) version 5.5. You will be familiar with the architecture, functions, along with the recovery process of VMware's Site Recovery Manager (SRM) version 5.5. The Fault Domain Manager (FDM) is an essential component that makes up High Availability (HA). For better understanding, you must learn about the functions and new features of HA in Vsphere 5. We'll take you through the configuration steps of a virtual flash resource and explain the functions of vSphere Storage Appliance (VSA). At the end of this course, you will also gain knowledge on managing ESXi firewalls and VSAN cluster configuration. If you're a student, researcher or have an interest in understanding vSphere data protection and managing firewalls, this course is for you.
