Centennial, CO, July 30, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Recognizing that the vast majority of corporations have adopted VMware virtualization technologies to optimize performance while reducing costs, Batky-Howell has introduced a vendor-neutral, four-day VMware vSphere 4 course as a private training delivery, available immediately. The all-inclusive training event includes training at the client's site, all the necessary course and lab materials, and individual access to an ESX server - providing an intense, hands-on learning experience.
VMware vSphere 4 encompasses a new suite of products that provides enhanced scalability, flexibility and reliability for server virtualization and opens the door to cloud computing. With VMware vSphere 4, data centers can deliver computing resources in an agile and cost-effective way.
The vendor-neutral aspect of this course ensures that students are exposed to both VMware and third-party tools, eliminating bias towards VMware-specific or endorsed products. The classroom lab will share a cluster of ESX Servers, a variety of different storage solutions (SAN, NAS, ISCI, local) as needed, a variety of third-party tools, and access to many pre-configured Virtual Machines, including Microsoft, Novell, Red Hat, and Ubuntu. Each student will perform lab exercises using their own ESX Server and a Windows Server Workstation.
"This course is an extremely affordable and intense learning option compared to authorized VMware vSphere training. Over 70% of class time is devoted to live-lab exercises, ensuring students leave the course with a comprehensive, real-world knowledge of ESX Server, vCenter, and Virtual Machine Architecture, as well as advanced management techniques," said, Bruce Batky, CEO.
A four-day Advanced vSphere training course and a three-day course specific to VMware View Manager 3 will be announced as available for private delivery shortly. In addition, Batky-Howell will continue to offer their VMware Infrastructure 3 Install, Configure, and Advanced Management course as a private training event for those organizations who have yet to migrate to the VMware vSphere platform.
