OBJECTIVES
During this 3-day course, you focus on deploying and managing VMware vSphere® with Kubernetes. You learn about how vSphere with Kubernetes can be used to orchestrate the delivery of Kubernetes clusters and containerized applications in a VMware vSphere® environment.
PREREQUISITES

This course requires completion the following courses:

•  VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage
•  VMware vSphere: Optimize and Scale
•  VMware NSX-T Data Center: Install, Configure, Manage

Experience working at the command line is helpful.

This course requires that a student be able to perform the following tasks with no assistance or guidance before enrolling in this course:
•  Create VMware vCenter Server® objects, such as data centers and folders
•  Create a virtual machine using a wizard or a template
•  Modify a virtual machine’s hardware
•  Migrate a virtual machine with VMware vSphere® vMotion®
•  Migrate a virtual machine with VMware vSphere® Storage vMotion®
•  Configure and manage a vSphere DRS cluster with resource pools
•  Configure and manage a VMware vSphere® High Availability cluster

If you cannot perform all of these tasks, VMware recommends that you complete one of the prerequisite courses before enrolling in VMware vSphere with Kubernetes: Deploy & Manage.
