VMware View: Design Best Practices [V5.1]

Course Details

In this course, you will learn the methodology for designing a VMware View solution for the VMware vSphere infrastructure. The design methodology includes recommendations for the type of information and data that must be gathered and analyzed to make sound design decisions for client systems, desktop options, vSphere infrastructure, and View components.

VMware recommended best practices are presented during each phase of the design process. You will work with other participants to design a View solution for a real-world project.
