This official VMware five-day, comprehensive, fast-paced VMware NSX® training course presents VMware NSX® as a part of the software-defined data center. You will learn how to use logical switching in NSX to virtualize your switching environment. The course also details logical routing to enable you to dynamically route between different virtual environments. You will also learn how to use gateway services, firewall configurations, and security services to help secure and optimize your NSX environment.
Access to a software-defined data center environment is provided through hands-on labs to reinforce the skills and concepts presented in the course.
Plus, this course prepares you for VMware Certified Professional 6 – Network Virtualization (VCP6-NV) certification exam.
