VMware vSphere Course Details

VMware vSphere includes the VMware ESX / ESXi hypervisor, a type 1 hypervisor that functions as the virtualization server; the VMware vCenter Server, which manages vSphere environments; the VMware vSphere Client, which is used to install and manage virtual machines through the hypervisor; and VMware VMFS, the file system component from VMware.
