About this Course

This comprehensive, fast-paced training course focuses on installing, configuring, and managing VMware NSX®. This course addresses NSX as a part of the software-defined data center, implementation use cases and features of NSX, and functionality operating at layer 2 through layer 7 of the OSI model. Data center network architectures are examined to demonstrate how NSX intersects with and virtualizes functions of a Cisco-based infrastructure in spine-leaf and traditional core-aggregate-access architectures. Lecture and hands-on lab activities support your understanding of NSX features, functionality, and ongoing management and control.
