VMware NSX: Install, Configure, Manage

This comprehensive, fast-paced training course focuses on installing, configuring, and managing VMware NSX™. NSX is a software networking and security virtualization platform that delivers the operational model of a virtual machine for the network. Virtual networks reproduce the layer 2–layer 7 network model in software, enabling complex multitier network topologies to be created and provisioned programmatically in seconds. NSX also provides a new model for network security where security profiles are distributed to and enforced by virtual ports and move with virtual machines.

About this Course

This comprehensive, fast-paced VMware NSX training course focuses on installing, configuring, and managing VMware NSX®. This VMware online training course presents VMware NSX as a part of the software-defined data center. You will learn how to use logical switching in VMware NSX to virtualize your switching environment. The VMware NSX training also details logical routing to enable you to dynamically route between different virtual environments. And you will learn how to take use gateway services, firewall configurations, and security services to help secure and optimize your VMware 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. Find additional course details below, and think of NterOne for all of your VMware learning needs.
