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.

Build a VMware Home Lab From Scratch With this Free Course!

Master this step-by-step guide to create a VMware home lab for safe testing and experimenting!

Businesses are compelled to choose cost-effective solutions to minimize the use of resources. Additionally, experimenting with production equipment is never the right answer. Therefore, specialists often build home labs, safe environments for testing without high-cost expenses. Many businesses and developers use VMware home labs. After the introduction of VMware Workstation in 1999, home labs became available for all, not just enterprises aiming for secure testing environments.

Nowadays, millions of developers take VMware lab setup for home for learning to operate new software or incorporating new features into their projects. Nowadays, virtualization is one of the dominant choices for generating virtual versions of devices or systems. VMware is the leading provider of virtualization, and in this course, we will be taking a look at the creation of VMware home labs.

What are the VMware home labs?

Building a virtual machine server can sound expensive and complicated. However, the creation of home labs is less of a struggle than you imagine. First of all, it is necessary to observe the freedom for experimentation that these virtual labs provide. Passionate tech specialists can build safe environments and get hands-on experience in the fields of networking, cybersecurity, or software. Therefore, this VMware ESXi tutorial is versatile to anyone interested in designing their home lab.

What is VMware Workstation?

VMware Workstation is a virtual machine software that creates secure virtual machines. In other words, it lets you run multiple operating systems on a single device. Instead of spending resources on several hardware tools to complement actions on different OS, you can use one device to achieve multipurpose features you need.

What will you find in this course on VMware lab setup for home?

In this course on VMware home labs, we will begin by listing some of the main requirements. First of all, you need to make sure that your processor supports EM64T and VT. Secondly, you should check whether virtualization technology is enabled on your host. Lastly, I will discuss some of the VMware vSphere 6.5 LAB memory requirements. The more powerful CPU you have, the more flexibility your VMware home labs will offer.

This VMware ESXi tutorial is perfectly suitable for beginners in virtualization and creation of home labs. However, if you want to be a competitive IT specialist, home labs are essential for fast and efficient learning. I will explain how you should download the VMware Workstation Player, the ESXi and vCenter Server 6.5, and the Windows ISO images. After the initial steps, we will work towards building a virtual machine server and implementing other steps towards a functional home lab.

Do not skip this chance to learn more about the creation of home labs with VMware! It will not only improve your resume but help your personal growth as well! With that extra experimentation, you will be able to learn and improve your skills!
