VMware Feature Walkthroughs



Have you found yourself curious about some of VMware’s newer technologies, or have questions about how to complete some tasks but haven’t had the time to sit down and take a hands-on lab course?

Let me introduce you to VMware’s Feature Walkthrough page (https://featurewalkthrough.vmware.com). This site is designed to give you exposure to the interfaces of many of VMware’s products. It’s an interactive site where you can follow a guided click-through of many technologies to get an overview. There are also options to see how to perform specific tasks inside these technologies.

It isn’t designed to replace the VMware Hands-On Labs (labs.hol.vmware.com) but supplements them. At the Features Walkthrough site, you can quickly click your way through some scenarios to get an understanding of how to complete specific tasks without the need to spin up an entire lab environment. You are limited in that you cannot deviate from the script, but if you have the desire to dig deeper you can always switch over to the HOL site and have the freedom to poke around at your leisure.

One quick note when going through a module make sure you expand the notes for each screen to get an understanding of what each step is doing. The red arrow indicates what you need to click. See the image below.
