Overview/Description Target Audience Expected Duration Lesson Objectives Course Number Overview/Description
vCenter Server's configuration and management capabilities include features such as VM templates, VM customization, rapid provisioning and deployment of VMs, role-based access controls, and fine-grained resource allocation controls. However, vCenter Server also provides the tools for the more advanced features of vSphere such as vMotion, vSphere Distributed Resource Scheduler, vSphere High Availability, and vSphere Fault Tolerance. Prior to administration and management, however, one should first become familiar with the managed inventory provided by vCenter Server and its associated objects. This course reviews vCenter Server's datacenter items, inventory considerations, as well as inventory views and options.
