In this intermediate VMware skills training, Jacob Moran covers the network virtualization objectives in the 2V0-642 exam, which is one of two exams required to earn the VCP6 - Network Virtualization (NSX) certification.
Whether NSX has already been rolled out and your job is going to be to maintain it, or you’re going for your NSX VCP, this VMware training has something for you. VMware NSX is a huge product, but Jacob breaks it down into smaller chunks that are a little more palatable. It starts with an introduction to software-defined networking and progresses to advanced topics like configuring DHCP and NAT on an NSX Edge services gateway. Whether you're installing NSX for the first time or you're in charge of maintaining your NSX environment, this course is for you.
Once you're done with this VMware training, you'll know how to install VMware NSX, operate and administer NSX, and deploy VXLANs, logical switches, distributed logical routers (DLRs), and Edge Service Gateways (ESGs). You’ll also get into the NSX advanced services covered on the VCP6-NV NSX exam.
For anyone who manages network infrastructure training, this VMware training can be used for 2V0-642 exam prep, onboarding new virtualization professionals, individual or team training plans, or as a VMware reference resource.
