Introduction to Virtualization – One Hour Crash Course

Learn key virtualization concepts that apply to VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V in this beginner course!

Created by Rick Crisci - VMware Certified Instructor, Virtualization Consultant


Students: 33257, Price: Free

Are you brand new to virtualization? Have you found that many of the training resources out there use complex technical jargon that make it difficult to understand the basic concepts behind virtualization? If you need to learn virtualization quickly and clearly, this is the course for you.

I have taught thousands of hours of live training directly for VMware. Most lectures in this course are 5 - 10 minutes long. This course gives you an understanding of general virtualization concepts. You'll learn how to convert a physical server to a VM. You'll see how the hypervisor provides access to CPU, memory, and storage resources.

If you need to learn VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware Workstation, or any other virtualization technology, this course is the ideal starting point.

This course is intended as an introduction to Virtual Networking and NSX-T Installation, taken before a more detailed NSX-T training course.

(We install and configure and NSX-T Management Cluster, but don't actually deploy any additional NSX-T networking services)
