VMware vSphere with Tanzu: Deploy and Manage V7

Course Overview

During this 3-day course, you focus on deploying and managing VMware vSphere® with Tanzu. You learn about how vSphere with Tanzu can be used to orchestrate the delivery of Kubernetes clusters and containerized applications in a vSphere environment. 

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:

• Describe vSphere with Tanzu and use cases in on-premises environments
• Deploy vSphere with Tanzu
• Describe VMware Tanzu Mission Control
• Describe the VMware NSX® networking requirements for vSphere with Tanzu.
• Describe vSphere with Tanzu on NSX-T Data Center
• Describe vSphere with Tanzu on vSphere Distributed Switch
• Create and manage vSphere with Tanzu namespaces
• Deploy and run container applications on vSphere with Tanzu
• Deploy and configure Harbor
• Describe the VMware Tanzu™ Kubernetes Grid™ service
• Deploy a Tanzu Kubernetes Grid cluster
• Deploy and run container applications on a Tanzu Kubernetes Grid cluster
• Describe the vSphere with Tanzu lifecycle
• Use logs and CLI commands to monitor and troubleshoot vSphere with Tanzu


This course requires completion of the following courses:

• VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage OR VMware vSphere: Optimize and Scale
• VMware NSX-T Data Center: Install, Configure, Manage

Experience working at the command line is helpful.

This course requires that a student be able to perform the following tasks with no assistance or guidance before enrolling in this course:

• Create VMware vCenter Server® objects, such as data centers and folders
• Create a virtual machine using a wizard or a template
• Modify a virtual machine’s hardware
• Migrate a virtual machine with VMware vSphere® vMotion®
• Migrate a virtual machine with VMware vSphere Storage vMotion
• Configure and manage a vSphere DRS cluster with resource pools
• Configure and manage a VMware vSphere® High Availability cluster

If you cannot perform all of these tasks, VMware recommends that you complete one of the prerequisite courses before enrolling in VMware vSphere with Tanzu: Deploy & Manage.
