vSphere 7: Foundations 1: Configure and Manage vSphere and ESXi 7

VMware vSphere is everywhere. Non-virtualized data centers are a thing of the past, and in order to stay relevant you must understand vSphere. This series of courses with VMware Certified Instructor Rick Crisci is ideal for anyone who wants to learn vSphere, including absolute beginners. In this first course, Rick focuses on configuration and installation of vSphere 7. Rick starts out with an introduction to virtualization, covering the basics of what a virtual machine is, and the ESXi hosts that the virtual machines run on. He then explains the roles of the vCenter and the Platform Services Controller, before moving onto a series of demos, showing you how to install ESXi 7 using the interactive installation, deploy the vCenter Server Appliance, add ESXi hosts to vCenter inventory, and more.
