This comprehensive, fast-paced training course focuses on installing, configuring, and managing VMware NSX. You will learn about VMware NSX as a part of the software-defined data center (SDDC) platform. Additionally, you will learn how to use the logical switching functionality in NSX to virtualize your switching environment. The course also details logical routing to enable you to dynamically route between different virtual environments. Finally, you will learn how to take advantage of gateway services, firewall configurations, and security services to help secure and optimize your NSX environment.
