Description

The pace at which technology is evolving in today's marketplace can be overwhelming. VMware vSphere is no exception to this paradigm. With each new release of vSphere, both major and minor releases, existing features are enhanced, new features are released, and trying to keep up with all of it can be challenging, especially during the major release cycles. In this course, What's New in vSphere 6.5, you'll be introduced and walked through all the major enhancements and features to vSphere. First, you'll learn about the new features in vCenter and VMware HA and DRS, both of which bring major improvements. Next you'll discover what's new and exciting with vSphere Storage, which include enhancements made to vSAN. Finally, you'll learn about what's new with VMware Update Manager and vSphere Security, both bringing long awaited feature requests into fruition. Once you complete the course, you'll be completely up-to-speed on all major features introduced and enhanced in vSphere 6.5.
