✔    Describe the software-defined data center.

✔   Deploy an ESXi host and create virtual machines.

✔   Describe vCenter Server architecture.

✔   Deploy a vCenter Server instance or VMware vCenter Server™ Appliance™ .

✔   Use vCenter Server to manage an ESXi host.

✔    Configure and manage vSphere infrastructure with VMware vSphere® Client™ and VMware vSphere® Web Client.

✔    Configure virtual networks with vSphere standard switches

✔   Use vCenter Server to manage various types of host storage: VMware vSphere® VMFS, NFS, virtual SAN and Virtual Volumes

✔   Manage virtual machines, templates, clones, and snapshots.

✔   Create a vApp.

✔   Describe and use the content library.

✔   Migrate virtual machines with VMware vSphere® vMotion®.

✔   Use VMware vSphere® Storage vMotion® to migrate virtual machine storage.

✔   Monitor resource usage and manage resource pools.

✔   Use VMware vRealize™ Operations Manager™ to identify and solve issues through analytics and alerts.

✔   Manage VMware vSphere® High Availability and VMware vSphere® Fault Tolerance.

✔   Use VMware vSphere® Replication™ and VMware vSphere® Data Protection™ to replicate virtual machines and perform data recovery.

✔   Use VMware vSphere® Distributed Resource Scheduler™ clusters to improve host scalability.

✔   Use vSphere distributed switches to improve network scalability.

✔   Use VMware vSphere® Update Manager™ to apply patches and perform basic troubleshooting of ESXi hosts, virtual machines, and vCenter Server operations.
