Take a deep dive into networking in VMware vSphere. Explore virtual switch basics, as well as more complex topics, including distributed switches and TCP/IP stacks.
VMware vSphere networking is a core VMware competency and is heavily represented in the VMware Certified Professional 6.5 - Data Center Virtualization (VCP6.5-DCV) exams. In this course, instructor Rick Crisci takes a deep dive into networking for VMware vSphere. Rick kicks off the course with virtual switch basics, going over how network traffic travels from the operating system of a VM and gets virtualized, as well as the major components of vSphere standard switches. He then builds to more complex topics, including distributed switches, physical networking, TCP/IP stacks, and private VLANs.
