VMware NSX on desktop

Hi guys,

I am still considering to obtain VCP-DCV (I think the aim would be 6.5 instead of initial 6.0) through VCP-NV as I CCNP holder. I know that NSX software is hardware greedy and for this reason I am going to build Core i7-6800K / 128GB DDR4 / 2TB SSD desktop. However, I am still unsure if at least 60-70% of what I need to play around with NSX can be done within nested virtualization.

Guys, I highly appreciate your thoughts in this regards.

Thank you.
Best, sacredboy!

    Save your money. Play around on Hands on Lab.

    I can see only 5 HOL on VMware HOL webpage.

    Is it enough? :)

    Only need intro, advanced & micro segmentation. If an area isn't covered among the 3 labs, just spin up an advanced lab and do self study.

    Hi dave330i,

    I believe you have experience with VMware HOL. Are there answers or solutions for the labs?
