VMware vSphere 5 Datacenter Design: Creating vSphere Conceptual and Logical Designs
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
The first step in developing a vSphere design is creating a conceptual design. The purpose of the conceptual design is to provide a high level outline of all business requirements and components. This course explains the process of gathering and analyzing business requirements and analyzing application requirements as well as how to determine any risks constraints and assumptions.
Once you have your conceptual design completed, you can move ahead to creating the logical design which details how the network components such as switches, hosts, and storage work with or depend on one another. The logical design is used to evaluate the conceptual – l design without specifying such details as physical hostnames, network addresses, or connection types. This course explains how to create a vSphere logical design from an existing conceptual design.
