VMware vSphere 6 Install, Configure, Manage – Part 2: vSphere 6 Clustering

Virtualization and cloud administrators who install, configure, and manage vSphere installations


Expected Duration
100 minutes

VMware vSphere 6 offers many features that provide the ability to protect and recover from various failures. This course covers important aspects of clustering basics and vMotion as well as fault tolerance requirements. You will also learn about high-availability roles and monitoring within a VMware vSphere 6 virtualized environment.


Clustering Basics

  • start the course
  • describe the basic process of setting up a cluster
  • describe limitations of a physical server environment
  • identify situations when it is appropriate to cluster
  • describe clustering fault tolerance, high availability, and Distributed Resource Scheduler
  • describe vMotion and perform a manual vMotion transfer
  • recognize characteristics of a Storage vMotion migration
  • identify processor, storage, and networking limitations of vMotion

Fault Tolerance

  • describe characteristics of virtual machine fault tolerance
  • specify the necessary requirements for virtual machine fault tolerance
  • configure virtual machine fault tolerance
  • use VMWare to verify a fault tolerance implementation
  • identify best practices for fault tolerance implementation

High Availability

  • describe the fundamentals of high availability in a virtualized environment
  • describe the various roles, and election process, within high availability
  • create a high-availability cluster in a VMWare virtualized environment
  • configure a high-availability cluster in a VMWare virtualized environment
  • describe host monitoring in a VMWare virtualized environment
  • recognize how admission control policies help manage hardware resources
  • identify high-availability VM monitoring settings
  • describe cluster monitoring settings in a VMWare virtualized environment

Practice: Clusters, Fault Tolerance, and HA

  • describe and configure various clustering, fault tolerance, and high-availability settings in vSphere 6
