Veeam Availability Suite v11: Configuration and Management
The Veeam® Availability Suite™ v11: Configuration and Management training course is a three-day, technical deep dive focused on teaching IT professionals the skills to configure, manage and support a Veeam Availability Suite v11 solution. With extensive hands-on-labs, the class enables administrators and engineers to effectively manage data in an ever-changing technical and business environment, bringing tangible benefit to businesses in the digital world.
This course is based on Veeam Availability Suite v11.
This course is suitable for anyone responsible for configuring, managing or supporting a Veeam Availability Suite v11 environment.
Completion of this course satisfies the prerequisite for taking the Veeam Certified Engineer (VMCE) 2022 exam.
- Students should be experienced professionals with solid knowledge of servers, storage, networking and virtualization.
- To prepare for the class, Veeam Partners would benefit from completing the Veeam Sales Professional (VMSP) and Veeam Technical Sales Professional (VMTSP) certifications within the ProPartner website.
- Veeam customers would benefit from completing the free Veeam Availability Suite on-demand training on www.veeam.com.
- Those who do not yet have any profound practical experience with Veeam need certain prior knowledge to attend the VMCE course, as this actually requires at least 6 months of professional practice with Veeam VAS as certification training!
- However, the necessary prior knowledge can be acquired here in the short term - ideally you should complete all modules: https://veeam.looop.co/workspace/37515.
- Due to time constraints, it is absolutely necessary to work through the labs quickly according to the written instructions in the Lab Guide - if the above-mentioned prerequisite practice is missing, at least the two following modules MUST be worked through, as otherwise working through the labs is hardly possible or only possible with great difficulty:
