Purpose of this course
This is an intensive course, which combines VSphere Installation, Configuration and Administration skills with advanced tasks and skills for configuring a highly available and scalable virtual infrastructure.

Who is this course for
This course is designed for experienced system administrators and system integrators willing to work hard to achieve superior vSphere skills with minimal time away from the office.

Benefits to your organisation
The organisation gains skills in a highly sought after and important area of service provision. They will benefit from an individual with the ability to configure virtual infrastructure and therefore deliver higher levels of availability and capacity while driving down costs in a range of areas such as hardware, power consumption and application provision.

Benefits to you as an individual
You will obtain the skills which are critical for both the move from a physical to a virtual infrastructure, and the day to day running of such a system. Learning how to build a VMWare infrastructure to support a wide range of operating systems and applications and how to configure them to work within a range of technology domains. As well you will gain exposure to a range of supporting technologies such as storage infrastructure and gain an understanding of how to piece them together to support the organisation.
