Course: VMware NSX for Internetworking Experts Fast Track [V6.1] ( VCA-DCV )

Download course card


This comprehensive, fast-paced training course focuses on installing, configuring, and managing VMware NSX™. This course covers NSX as a part of the software-defined data center platform, implementation use cases along with features of NSX, and functionality operating at Layer 2 through Layer 7 of the OSI model.

Data center network architectures are examined to demonstrate how NSX intersects with and virtualizes functions of a Cisco-based infrastructure in spine-leaf and traditional core-aggregate-access architectures. Lecture and hands-on lab activities support the student’s understanding of NSX features, functionality, and on-going management and control.

Goal description

  • System administration experience on Microsoft Windows or Linux operating systems.
  • Understanding of concepts presented in the VMware Data Center Virtualization Fundamentals course for VCA-DCV certification.
  • A solid background in a Cisco-based infrastructure or NSX: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.1].

Participant profile

Experienced system administrators that specialize in networking

Course duration and form

35 hours (5 days x 7 hours), including lectures and exercises.
