    VMware Certified Advanced Professional 6 - Network Virtualization Deployment (VCAP6-NV Deploy) Exam

This five-day comprehensive tutorial covers installation, configuration and management issues of VMware NSX.

This tutorial examines the VMware NSX product, which is part of VMware's software-defined data center solution. In this tutorial, participants will see how to use the logical switching feature with VMware NSX and how to implement it in existing environments.

In addition, in this training, logical routing topics will be covered and dynamic routing between different environments will be discussed. And participants will examine the optimization of gateway services, firewall configuration, and security services for VMware NSX environments.

Participants can also take the title of VMware Certified Professional 6 - Network Virtualization exam (VCP6-NV), which they can take at the end of the training.
