VMware vSphere 5.5 Advanced Administration

This popular four-day class is an intensive introduction to the advanced features of VMware vSphere 5.5. We assume participants have working knowledge of VMware vSphere 4.x or vSphere 5.x, and webuild on that knowledge through a rapid review of common features followed by in-depth presentations of advanced topics including vSphere 5 performance, availability, scalability and security. More than 40 percent of class time is devoted to labs so concepts, skills and best practices are developed and reinforced.
This class is unique in its approach; which is to identify and eliminate common IT pain points and then to use virtualization to deliver clear, tangible benefits. Each topic is presented from the perspective of delivering key business value; not just the technical or mechanical aspects of the software.
By the end of the class, attendees will have learned the benefits, skills, and best practices of virtualization. Attendees will be able to effectively design, implement, scale, secure, back up, recover, upgrade, manage and troubleshoot VMware vSphere 5.5 environments.

VMware vSphere 5.1 with ESXi and vCenter

This powerful five-day class is an intense introduction to virtualization using VMware’s vSphere 5.1 including VMware ESX 5.1 and vCenter. Assuming no prior virtualization experience, this class starts with the basics and rapidly progresses to more advanced topics. More than 40 percent of class time is devoted to labs so concepts, skills and best practices are developed and reinforced.
Initial labs focus on installation and configuration of stand-alone ESXi servers. As the class progresses, shared storage, networking and centralized management are introduced. The class continues on to more advanced topics including resource balancing, high availability, backup and recovery, troubleshooting and more. Disaster recovery, rapid deployment, hot migration and workload consolidation are also covered.
This class is unique in its approach; which is to identify common IT pain points and then clearly explain and demonstrate how virtualization delivers clear, tangible benefits (e.g.: reduced costs, greater consistency, responsiveness, reduced administration, server consolidation, etc.). Each topic is presented from the perspective of delivering key business value; not just the technical or mechanical aspects of the software.

Desktop Virtualization with VMware View 5.1

Desktop virtualization promises to be the next great wave in IT’s ongoing quest to provide better service, higher availability, improved security, increased standardization and a more robust computing environment while lowering deployment, administration and infrastructure costs.
Desktop Virtualization with VMware View 5.1 is a 4-day intense introduction to desktop virtualization using VMware’s View 5.1 product suite including VMware View Composer, VMware View Manager and VMware ThinApp.
Successful VMware View implementations depend on the effective deployment and use of Active Directory, SQL Server, VMware vSphere, Windows desktop OS’, networking infrastructure, SAN storage and NFS datastores. Our class is unique in that students build all of these components in class, thereby ensuring they can successfully deploy View in their own office. More than 40 percent of class time is devoted to labs so concepts and skills are reinforced.
By the end of the class, attendees will have learned the benefits, mechanics and best practices of desktop virtualization. Attendees will be able to design, implement, deploy, configure, monitor, manage, troubleshoot and secure a robust virtual desktop environment.
