MOD 20745: Implementing a Software-Defined Datacenter

Description

This five-day course will teach the student how use System Center 2016 to implement and manage a virtualization infrastructure in software defined datacenter. During the course, students are also instructed on how monitor and protect the infrastructure using System Center operations and Data Protection manager

The intention of this course is to teach IT professionals and administrators who are responsible for designing, implementing, and managing virtualization infrastructure in a software-defined datacenter by using System Center 2016 Virtual Machine Manager. Main focus of this course is on managing Hyper-V virtualization infrastructure in Windows Server 2016. However, the course also covers other virtualization platforms that can be managed by using Virtual Machine Manager 2016.

Prerequisites

It is recommended that students who attend this training should already have:

An understanding of TCP/IP and networking concepts
An understanding of different storage technologies and concepts
Familiarity with different types of virtualizations
