• Explain the vSphere components and their function in the infrastructure
• Install and configure VMware ESXi™ hosts
• Deploy and configure VMware vCenter® Server Appliance™
• Use VMware vSphere® Client™ to manage the vCenter Server inventory
   and the vCenter Server configuration
• Manage, monitor, back up, and protect vCenter Server Appliance
• Create virtual networks with vSphere standard switches
• Describe the storage technologies supported by vSphere
• Configure virtual storage using iSCSI and NFS storage
• Create and manage VMware vSphere® VMFS datastores
• Use the vSphere Client to create virtual machines, templates, clones, and
• Create a content library and deploy virtual machines from templates in
   the library
• Manage virtual machine resource use
• Migrate virtual machines with VMware vSphere® vMotion® and VMware
   vSphere® Storage vMotion®
• Create and manage a vSphere cluster that is enabled with VMware vSphere
   ® High Availability and VMware vSphere® Distributed Resource
