VMware vSphere 7 Boot Camp Bundle

Includes VMware vSphere 7 with ESXi and vCenter and vSphere 7 Boot Camp

Course Summary

About This Bundle
Why spend over $6,300+USD to sit an official VMware vSphere FastTrack [v7.0] class when you can get our comparable training for less? This bundle includes two training courses.

VMware vSphere 7.0 with ESXi and vCenter
First you get our 5-day equivalent intensive introduction to VMware vSphere™ 7.0 including VMware  ESX™ 7.0 and vCenter™ 7.0. In this course, I you will learn how to install, configure, administer, scale, patch and troubleshoot VMware vSphere 7.0. Assuming no prior vSphere experience, this class starts with the basics and rapidly progresses to more advanced topics. You will learn how to:

  • Understand / explain vSphere virtualization including what it is, how it works and its many benefits
  • Install ESXi from scratch
  • Connect virtual and physical networking
  • Connect to and use NAS and SAN storage
  • Build and rapidly deploy Virtual Machines
  • Install and configure vCenter Server Appliance and how to manage it from the VAMI interface
  • Effectively size, manage and scale ESXi compute resources
  • Cold migrate, Hot VMotion migrate and hot Storage VMotion migrate VMs
  • Build Load Balanced and Failure recovery clusters
  • Patch and Update ESXi 7 using Lifecycle Manager

VMware vSphere 7.0 Boot Camp
Use this course add-on to upgrade our VMware vSphere 7.0 with ESXi and vCenter course to a full Boot Camp course. VMware's official VMware vSphere Fast Track [v7.0]course is wildly expensive at $6,200+USD/seat. Save your money and get comparable training at a much more reasonable price. You will learn how to:

  • Work with advanced vSwitch features including Security policies, pNIC Teaming policies, network health and best practices
  • Create, configure and manage Content Libraries including adding VM Templates and other files to Content Libraries

ESXLab - Your source for affordable VMware vSphere training.

Q: What do you do if you need to learn VMware vSphere introductory or advanced skills - but can't afford the $4,000+ needed to attend official VMware training?
A: Enroll in ESXLab's VMware vSphere training instead!

My is Larry Karnis and I have been teaching VMware vSphere since 2004, when I was invited by VMware to become one of their first contract instructors. I taught their Install, Configure, Manage and FastTrack courses for 5 years. In 2008, I founded ESXLab and dedicated it to providing practical, effective and objective VMware training for corporate and individual customers. I have led hundreds of training classes all around the world and have taught vSphere to literally thousands of people in my live instructor led events. And I have taught over 25,000 people through video-on-demand training!

This site is my official video-on-demand training site. This site offers my complete introductory and advanced vSphere training courses. These courses provide you with a learning experience comparable to what you would receive if you attended a crazy expensive 5-day event such as official VMware vSphere 7.0 Install, Configure, Manage  or VMware vSphere 7.0 Optimize and Scale courses. But my video-on-demand training sells for a small fraction of the cost of live training.

By offering self-paced Video-on-Demand (VoD) training, digital course eBooks, live remote access vSphere labs and online support, I can provide you with a self-paced vSphere learning experience that will match or exceed what you would get from an instructor led training class. My goal is to give you a better training experience - for much, much less.

How Will ESXLab vSphere Training Benefit Me?

I get lots feedback from people who tell me the benefits they have received from my courses. They use my training to:

  • Help prepare for VMware Certified Professional (VCP)  or VMware Certified Advanced Professional (VCAP) certification
  • Fill in knowledge gaps on software they already have and use
  • Learn about new features and capabilities of vSphere 6.7 or 6.5
  • Learn how to use vSphere Web Client and HTML 5 Client (because vSphere Client is obsolete)
  • Get the skills necessary to move into an entry level vSphere administrators job
  • Get the skills necessary to move up to intermediate and advanced level vSphere administrators job

Why Learn From Me?
I am an IT consultant / trainer with over 25 years of experience. I currently run an IT consulting and training company called ESXLab that specializes in VMware vSphere consulting and training. 

After graduating with Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Math in 1984, I worked for 10 years as a UNIX programmer and administrator. I switched to Linux in 1995 and started teaching Linux courses for Learning Tree, Global Knowledge and RedHat. At RedHat, I taught introductory and advanced Linux courses and administered the RedHat Certified Engineer exams. I even authored two books on Linux.

I've been working with VMware products since 2001. I earned my first VMware Certified Professional (VCP) designation on ESX 2.0 in 2004 (VCP #: 993). I have earned VCP in ESX 3, and in vSphere 4 and 5. I have been providing VMware consulting and training for more than 17  years. I have taught more than 25,000 people how to use vSphere in live instructor led training, online live training and video-on-demand training.

I worked for VMware as a VMware Certified Instructor (VCI) for five years (2004-2008). After leaving VMware, I launched my own VMware training business called ESXLab.  

I hold many industry certificates including VCP-Datacenter Virtualization on VMware Infrastructure 2 & 3 and vSphere 4 & 5 (ret.), VMware Certified Instructor (ret.), RedHat Certified Engineer (RHCE), RedHat Certified Instructor (RHCI) and RedHat Certified Examiner (RHCX) as well as certifications from the Linux Professional Institute, Hewlett Packard, Santa Cruz Operation and others. 

I hope to see you in one of my VMware classes... There's no risk as I make plenty content available for free preview - so check it out and see if my VMware vSphere training is for you.

Thanks for your interest.
