Server virtualization is a hot topic in IT because of the potential for saving money on physical hardware, electricity and cooling. With VMware server virtualization, a hypervisor (ESXi) is installed on the physical server to allow for multiple virtual machines (VMs) to run on the same physical server.

In this course, your trainer Manoj will cover the ESXi 7 host and vCenter 7 server administration. He will cover the installation, configuration and management of multiple ESXi hosts, and all dependent components (like VMs, storage and networking) from a single centralized location.


  • Earlier experience in Linux or Windows server is required
  • Know the networking services like DNS, DHCP, File server, etc. at least theoretically
  • Recommended: Windows Server administration knowledge.
