If you haven’t yet taken the Hands-on Lab for vSphere 6.5, now is the perfect time to do so. When it was originally released during VMworld 2016, this lab was running a pre-release version of vSphere. The HOL team has been hard at work, and they have just updated the lab to the officially released version of vSphere 6.5. By taking this lab, you can learn all about the great new features in this release, including
- Security enhancements, including VM encryption, secure boot, and audit-quality logging
- Greatly improved Host Profiles and Auto Deploy, as well as enhancements to HA and resource management features
- vCenter Server Appliance, which includes native high availability, file-based backup and restore, and so much more
The best part is, if you take this lab, you can become eligible to win a DJI Mavic Pro drone! The contest runs from April 19 to May 19, 2017, so be sure to register for the What’s New with vSphere 6.5 Hands-on Lab.
