VMware NSX Study- Day 2

Hi Guys,

This is Maddy back again.

I hope you enjoyed my last blog on Vmware NSX Day 1 study materials.

Today, I am here with the second part of the study materials and there will be three blogs on Study Materials. First, one you already read, the second one you are reading now ๐Ÿ™‚ and in the third one, there will be a link to different study materials, nuggets, and blogs etc. So, you can consider these three blogs are a consolidation of different NSX study materials, which I have used or using till today.

When I started studying Vmware NSX, I realized that being a Network Engineer, I only have networking knowledge. There was a bigger part, which was missing for me is “Virtualization“.

So, today’s blog is entirely based on Vmware vSphere, which is one of the major components to understand, if you want to understand Vmware NSX better.

No virtualization means, no Network Virtualization as well ๐Ÿ™‚

Now, enough preface Maddy ๐Ÿ™‚

Below are the URLs which helped me to have a fair idea and I believe this will help you to understand Vmware vSphere.

There is a nice VMWare vSphere 6.5 video playlist created by IT Training Tutorial, which consists of 8 videos but covered most of the topic related to implementing vSphere.

VMWare vSphere 6.5

Additionally, below are the URLs which will also help you to get a better hold on the Vmwareย  vSphere Virtualization environment.
