Chat

This five-day course explains how to implement and manage virtualization infrastructure in a software-defined datacenter by using System Center 2016 Virtual Machine Manager. The course also describes how to monitor the infrastructure by using System Center Operations Manager and protect it by using Data Protection Manager.

The main focus of this course is on managing Hyper-V virtualization infrastructure in Windows Server 2016, although the course also covers other virtualization platforms that can be managed by using Virtual Machine Manager 2016.

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the different virtualization options.
  • Install and manage Hyper-V on Windows Server 2016.
  • Install and configure System Center 2016 Virtual Machine Manager.
  • Manage storage fabric and fabric updates.
  • Configure and manage Virtual Machine Manager library and library objects.
  • Manage the networking fabric.
  • Create and manage virtual machines by using Virtual Machine Manager.
  • Manage clouds in Virtual Machine Manager.
  • Manage services in Virtual Machine Manager.
  • Monitor virtualization infrastructure by using System Center Operations Manager.
  • Implement and manage Hyper-V Replica and Azure Site Recovery.
  • Protect virtualization infrastructure by using Data Protection Manager.
