Course Description

VMware vSphere 6.0 is the platform businesses depend on to deploy, manage and run their virtualized Windows and Linux workloads.

In this course you will learn how to create and run VM Backup jobs using vSphere Data Protection, and how to hot replicate critical VMs either within your vSphere environment or to a remote (disaster recovery) vSphere Environment using vSphere Replication. vSphere Data Protection and vSphere Replication are two services available in most vSphere Licenses. With these tools, you can backup, recover and protect critical business VMs.

Learn how to Backup and Replicate Virtual Machines

This course covers two major topics that all vSphere 6 vCenter administrators must know:

  • First, we look at how you can use vSphere Replication to select and hot replicate critical Virtual Machines to ESXi hosts either within your existing vCenter environment or to a remote vCenter environment (your Disaster Preparedness site). Periodic hot VM replication will help you successfully cope with an IT Disaster by regularly duplicating selected VMs to your remote site. Should an IT Disaster occur, you can use vSphere Replication to selectively restore critical VMs, boot them up, put them back into service to restore critical business functions. We will look at how to install the vSphere Replication appliance, how to select VMs for replication, replication policies like Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO). We will also see how to restore replicated VMs and place them back into service.
  • Next we look at vSphere Data Protection - VMware's hot Virtual Machine backup and recovery tool. We will see how to install and configure the vSphere Data Protection appliance, how to create backup jobs, how to set backup retention policies and how to verify that backups are running correctly. We will see how to perform Virtual Machine Recoveries - both in place (overwriting the original VM) or to a new target location. We will also see how to perform an Emergency VM Recoveries (when vCenter is not available) and how to use the self-service File Level Recovery portal to allow VM administrators to recover individual files and directories. We will also see how to perform management tasks on the VMware Data Protection appliance.


The skills you will acquire in this course will help make you a more effective vSphere 6 administrator.

What are the requirements?

  • To use vSphere Replication and VMware Data Protection, you should have a working vSphere environment including one or more ESXi hosts managed by vCenter Server
  • You should have access to shared storage such as VMFS or NFS datastores that you can use as backup and replication targets
  • You should understand how to configure and use Ethernet and TCP/IP on your ESXi hosts
  • One way to acquire these skills is to take our VMware vSpher 6.0 Part 1 AND Part 2 classes on Udemy

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Implement VM Distaster Preparedness with vSphere Replication
  • Download and import the vSphere Replication Appliance
  • Understand the trade offs between local and site to site replication
  • Verify that vSphere Replication is working in your environment
  • Understand and configure Recovery Point Objective and Recovery Time Objective policies
  • Perform scheduled and ad hoc VM replications
  • Recover replicated VMs back into service
  • Implement VM back up and recovery using VMware Data Protection
  • Download and import the VMware Data Protection virtual appliance
  • Register vSphere Data Protection with vCenter
  • Provision and connect backup storage to your VDP appliance
  • Create back up jobs to back up one or more Virtual Machines
  • Perform scheduled and ad hoc VM back ups
  • Perform full VM recoveries
  • Perform individual file level recoveries using VDP's self-service file recovery portal

What is the target audience?

  • This course is intended for vSphere administrators who want to take advantage of the Virtual Machine Replication and Backup capabilities included in most vSphere license tiers
  • This course will also benefit those who wish to learn about the capabilities of VMware Data Protetion and vSphere Replication so they can properly assess their need for 3rd party VM backup and replication tools.

Instructor Biography

Larry Karnis, VMware vSphere Consultant/Mentor, VCP vSphere 2, 3, 4 and 5

Get VMware vSphere and View trained here... on Udemy!

What do you do if you need to learn VMware but can't afford the $4,000 - $6,000 charged for authorized training? Now you can enroll in my equivalent VMware training here on Udemy!

I have created a six courses that together offer over 32 hours of VMware vSphere 6 lectures (about 8 days of instructor lead training at 4hrs lecture per day). With Udemy, I can provide more insight and detail, without the time constraints that a normal instructor led training class would impose. My goal is to give you a similar or better training experience - at about 10% of the cost of classroom training.

I am an IT consultant / trainer with over 25 years of experience. I worked for 10 years as a UNIX programmer and administrator before moving to Linux in 1995. I've been working with VMware products since 2001 and now focus exclusively on VMware. I earned my first VMware Certified Professional (VCP) designation on ESX 2.0 in 2004 (VCP #: 993). I have also earned VCP in ESX 3, and in vSphere 4 and 5.

I have been providing VMware consulting and training for more than 10 years. I have lead literally hundreds of classes and taught thousands of people how to use VMware. I teach both introductory and advanced VMware classes.

I even worked for VMware as a VMware Certified Instructor (VCI) for almost five years. After leaving VMware, I decided to launch my own training business focused on VMware virtualization. Prior to working for VMware, I worked as a contract consultant and trainer for RedHat, Global Knowledge and Learning Tree.

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Math from the University of Toronto. I also hold numerous industry certifications including VMware Certified Professional 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 LPI, HP, SCO and others.

I hope to see you in one of my Udemy VMware classes... If you have questions, please contact me directly.

Thanks,

Larry
