Course overview

This course presents a methodology for designing a VMware® View™ solution for the VMware vSphere® infrastructure. The design methodology includes recommendations for the type of information and data that must be gathered and analyzed to make sound design decisions for client systems, desktop options, the vSphere infrastructure, and View components. VMware best practices are presented during each phase of the design process. You will work with other participants to design a View solution for a real-world project. This course is 50% lecture and 50% case-study activities.


Prerequisites

  • Completion of VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage (HL235S) or equivalent experience with VMware vSphere
