VCP5-DCV course

This online course prepares you for the VCP-DCV5 exam.


About this course

This course teaches you to manage virtual machines in a VMware vSphere environment. vSphere is a software suite that includes components like ESXi, vCenter Server, vSphere Client, vCenter Orchestrator, vSphere Update Manager and so on.


This tutorial is designed for people with some experience in the world of virtualization. Although the course presumes some knowledge about computer systems in general, it is customized for beginners. This course can also be used in preparation for the VCP5-DCV (VMware Certified Professional – Data Center Virtualization) certification.


You should have a basic understanding of computers. You should know how to download and install a program in Windows and some basic knowledge of system administration (configuring IP addresses, connecting to the Internet, installing Windows, etc.).

What you’ll learn

You will learn how to set up your own virtual infrastructure using VMware vSphere. You will learn how to deploy a virtual machine on ESXi, how to set up a virtual network, migrate virtual machines using vMotion, set up Fault Tolerance…

  16. The closest you can get to a fully structured instructor-led training, at your own pace !


    Kudos to Geek University for this superb VMware training, a great job at presenting VMware vSphere in a practical and demystifying way, step by step with configurations screen shots, use-cases and configurations examples that help answer the Why and How of virtualization !

  17. very good content


    thanks to the trainer and your whole team, the study material is really good and easy to understand.

  18. Great Course


    The course is very thorough and covers many if not all of VMWare’s functionality. It provides a great overview and step by step instruction if interested in how to install, configure and use the functionality.

  19. Great self paced course


    It’s reminiscent of courses you’d have to attend (minus the labs). The great part is that you do it at your pace, so a 3 days course can be done in a few hours. This course is a solid, practical introduction which would benefit from having more background information, but stops short of getting into the deep details of the subject.

  20. Very Good Cource


    you can understand the concept

  21. VMWARE-vSphere


    Very helpful. Thank you very much.
