Introduction To VMware ESXi

Today's Enterprise server and desktop environments have undergone drastic changes in the last ten years. No longer is it necessary to spend tens of thousands of dollars on big physical servers to meet the email, file, web and database needs of an organization. You will often find that old desktop equipment is being repurposed as personal kiosks accessing virtual company desktop environments. What makes all of this possible is virtualization. This course is taught by a seasoned Information Technology professional with more than 20 years of industry experience in Linux, Microsoft Windows and in a number of Enterprise and Desktop virtualization technologies. We will discuss all of the types of virtualization that you may run into in the workplace, from the datacenter to the desktop. These videos will define the different virtualization solutions from various vendors and what the specific use cases for each are. We will then explore one vendor solution in detail, VMWare’s ESXi 5.5 Free Edition as well as the Enterprise Edition. What Is Covered? These videos will introduce the viewer to virtualization concepts that apply to both the datacenter and desktop environments. We will prepare you to install, configure and manage server images, desktop clients and the VMWare ESXi 5.5 virtual environment itself. We will also discuss specific use cases for each virtualization solution as well as explore the reasons why virtualization has become the enterprise and cloud solution of choice.
