Nutanix ECP Administration (5.0) Course - Part 2

This is my second post in the series on my training to gain the Nutanix Platform Professional (NPP) certification.

My previous blog post Nutanix ECP Administration (5.0) Course -Part 1, has brief details of Module 1 – “Introducing the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform”

This post will provide some information on what is in Module 2 – “Administering the Nutanix Cluster”.

My training for the NPP will involve getting hands-on with both Nutanix CE in my home lab and our Nutanix Cluster at work, as well as completing online Nutanix training. I have also found that others have also used the Nutanix Bible as well as the nu.school YouTube channel to supplement the training.

This module is again split into two parts, “Rack Mounting” and “Configuring a Cluster”. The modules are in the format of slide shows or short videos with questions to confirm and consolidate your learning.

The “Rack Mounting” section discusses customer evaluation along with racking of the equipment. 

The “Configuring a Cluster” section runs through Cluster Configuration, Security Management, Data at Rest, Concluding the installation and Support Services. This section also runs through three Lab exercises that you can perform. Again this section has consolidation questions.

Once completed, the next module (Getting to Know Acropolis) is then unlocked....
