VMware vSphere Operate, Scale and Secure 8.0

These labs provide the hands-on experience needed to gain advanced skills for configuring and maintaining a highly available and scalable virtual infrastructure.

The NETLAB+ VMware vSphere OSS 8.0 pod is used to support the VMware vSphere OSS 8.0 labs.

This offering requires the user or institution to be a participant in the VMware IT Academy.

Certification Resources: The VMware vSphere OSS 8.0 Labs map to the VMware Certified Professional Data Center Virtualization 2023 Certification. The VCP-DCV 2023 certification validates candidate skills to implement, manage, and troubleshoot a vSphere infrastructure, using best practices to provide a powerful, flexible, and secure foundation for business agility that can accelerate the transformation to cloud computing.

Using the Labs

Always select the correct lab exercise for the lab being performed. Students or teams should schedule the correct lab exercise from the catalog. NETLAB+ will only show those labs for which the required pod type is available. A lab that works on different pod types may appear more than once if your system is so equipped. Instructors should select the correct lab from the Exercise tab during instructor-led lab reservations. This can be done as many times as needed during the reservation.
