The VMware NSX: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.4] training will teach you how to use firewall configurations, gateway services, and security services to optimize your NSX environment. It is known as the foundation for most of the other VMware technologies in the software-defined data center.

We, at Multisoft Systems, have designed this comprehensive training course for experienced system administrators, system engineers, and network administrators. The course we are offering details logical routing in order to enable the attendees for dynamically route between different virtual environments.

Upon the completion of this course, the candidates will be able to:
  • Configure NSX Edge firewall rules to restrict network traffic
  • Configure NSX distributed firewall rules to restrict network traffic
  • Configure NSX L2 bridging
  • Configure and use all main features of the NSX Edge services gateway
  • Configure and deploy NSX distributed router appliances to establish east-west connectivity
  • Configure and deploy NSX components for management and control
  • Describe basic NSX layer 2 networking
  • Configure an identity-aware firewall
  • Configure, deploy, and use logical switch networks
Target Audience:
  • System administrators
  • System engineers
  • Network administrators
