Clear and Simple VMware Certified Associate (VCA-DBT)

Want to learn about VMware vSphere? This is the ideal course for beginners, and aligns to the VCA-DBT 1V0-701 exam.

Are you looking for VMware Certified Associate training? Do you want to learn from an experienced trainer who makes complex concepts simple and easy to understand? Do you need to prepare for the VCA-DBT exam?

I am a VMware Certified Instructor who has taught thousands of hours of live training directly for VMware. Most lectures in this course are 5 - 15 minutes long. A few deeper topics are slightly longer. This course gives you an understanding of key VMware products and concepts.

VMware vSphere is everywhere. Non-virtualized datacenters are a thing of the past, and in order to stay relevant you must understand virtualization and cloud concepts.

This course features a few different sections. I have included 28 lessons teaching you the basics of vSphere, because that is the most important VMware product, and is core to understanding NSX, vSAN, and other products. However, understand that much of this vSphere knowledge is not directly applicable to the VCA-DBT exam. Learning it is important to have a strong foundation. Key vSphere topics covered include vCenter, ESXi, Host Clusters, Availability, DRS, Storage, Networking, and Fault Tolerance.

After that we take a deep dive into the topics of the VCA-DBT exam. vSAN, NSX, Horizon, and vRealize are key knowledge areas that are covered. You will understand the use cases for all these products, and will learn everything you need to know to pass the VMware Certified Associate - Digital Business Transformation (VCA-DBT) exam.

What you’ll learn

  • Understand basic vSphere concepts
  • Identify VMware vSphere products and their use cases
  • Explain datacenter virtualization and compare to a physical datacenter
  • Identify challenges that can be resolved by vSphere
  • Differentiate features, design objectives, and use cases for vSphere, vSAN, Horizon, NSX, and vRealize.

Are there any course requirements or prerequisites?

  • You should have a basic understanding of computing.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone who is new to vSphere
  • Anyone who plans to take the VMware Certified Associate-Digital Business Transformation (VCA-DBT) exam.
  • Decision-makers who need to understand VMware products and use cases.
