VMWare Training: become VMWare King Without the VMWare Price Tag!
We at VIADMIN.COM strongly believe that VMWare training should be comprehensive, affordable and practical.
VIADMIN.COM offers a comprehensive suite of online courses to enhance your Sys Admin qualities and ability to deal with real-life VMWare problems and work on exciting virtualization projects. Since 2008 when we released our first VMWare course, Administering VMWare ESX Server 3.5, quality professionals from Fortune 500 companies to one man consultancies have looked to improve their VMWare skills, hands on experience and for comprehensive content on our website. As part of our VMWare Training they found reliable ESX hosting service, great support and an ever-growing product line.
We have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars developing the course content, building the Practice Lab and organizing the testing environment in a cluster. Our training covers various virtualization-related topics and technologies, so that we can get you to the point where you can make sound decisions based on your knowledge, quickly and efficiently.
Here’s what’s inside our VMWare training program:
Inside the VMWare Server (and soon Hyper-V) virtualization training and practice lab, you’ll find the essential training and tools that you need to become a super qualified virtualization expert!
Here are the details:
Everyone has unlimited access to our training videos! We offer week-to-week or month-to-month access to our enterprise-level VMWare Practice Lab, which includes your own dedicated physical server, access to a second shared ESX server, NFS network storage, or ISCSI network storage, BIOS-level access to your dedicated server, fast Citrix web-based access, and finally, your own management station hosted on a different server.
Every month we add more training materials and we cover a different specific area of Virtualization technology in depth. We will also interview a relevant Virtualization expert when possible to discover their cutting-edge techniques.
Also, check this out… This is NEW for those who join now:
Seeing is believing and inside this incredible training and practice lab you’ll be able to host even the most I/O, CPU or memory intensive applications, build the entire Virtual Infrastructure and get it exactly the way you like it. You can create an environment that represents your office network and applications. You could also choose to set it up to test things that you’ve never done before, so you can see how particular solution will work for you. You don’t have to be an expert in order to learn and succeed in implementing it – testing will teach you the best way to implement your new system. Success in IT projects is primarily dependent on what you did to test every single step of the implementation. And yes, we are adding new and powerful servers to our training program to meet and exceed the current state of technology found at medium to large organizations.
Every once in a while we are asked how our VMWare training can help clients to become VMware Certified Professionals.
The fact is we are not an authorized VMWare training center. All of the training tutorials on our website, the Practice Lab, and the simulated exam are meant to prepare you to take on the real life challenges of a Virtual Datacenter Administrator.
We believe that providing you with the ability to gain a real understanding of the virtual environment is much more important than a piece of paper.
Our training hasn’t been designed to meet VMWare’s expectations; it was designed to exceed what VMWare Training delivers. VMWare gives you few days of training and just few hours of practice. We give you over 20 hours of training that you can access whenever you want and a full week of practice to start with. VMWare won’t help you with the exam preparation – we will. Although our VMWare training program will not provide you with the paper requirements for VCP or help you to achieve VMWare certification of any level, our Certified Virtual Infrastructure Administrator certification will mean more to you in terms of personal satisfaction, development, and actual knowledge.
All right, so what is in our VMWare training program?
First of all we have now over 20 hours jam-packed video content that you can access right away.
Our wide range of VMWare training videos include: VMWare ESX Administration Training, VMotion, DRS, and HA (High Availability) Administration Training, ESX Server Administration Basics, Administering and Changing Virtual Machines, Configuring the ESX Server, Administering Permissions, Users, Groups, and Roles, Scheduled Tasks, Monitoring ESX Servers, VMotion Configuration and Administration, DRS Configuration and Administration, Resource Pools, Virtual Center Administration Training, Migrating Virtual Machines, Virtual Machine Templates, Customizing Virtual Machines with Sysprep, VMWare Converter.
Now you can learn VMWare with our self-paced training courses and videos and practice and test on real ESX servers in our enterprise-grade VMWare Practice lab. This way you get hands-on training, which is significantly better than just listening to VMWare instructor. VMWare gives you a limited number of hours to practice and we believe this wrong. If you sign up for our VMWare Lab you will have the chance to practice administering VMWare ESX Servers and test run your own applications in a completely virtualized environment. You can also put your knowledge from each video training into practice on a real dedicated ESX server and shared SAN storage by remotely logging in to our datacenter lab for a week, full month, or more. All of this is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We believe that when it comes to VMWare training, you need to develop true competence in a variety of skills, such as virtual networks, shared datastores (LUNs), iSCSI protocol, virtual hardware configuration, virtual switches, backing up virtual machines, protecting your virtual environment against hackers, DoS attacks, I/O bound problems, planning and managing your virtual resources (including live virtual CPUs, virtual memory, virtual hard disks). This means that you are not just receiving an overview of the material. The most successful way to assure virtual infrastructure competence is through managed hands-on practice. In our training program people like you spend at least a week of their time in our datacenter performing structured hands-on lab exercises that build virtual infrastructure competence, confidence, and clarity.
VIADMIN instructors are experienced virtual infrastructure professionals, cross-trained in several technologies with years of real-life experience. Our virtual infrastructure instructors must achieve a 98% score at VMWare VCP exam and our internal approval, or they are not allowed to teach for us.
Our VMWare Training is composed of the following four modules:
Based on our own virtual infrastructure experience as well as the collective experience of some of today’s best system engineers, we’ve developed video training to outline each step of setting up and administering VMWare. VMWare VCP Certified system engineers with years of experience prepared these videos.
Our lab was built in one of the top datacenter facilities in North America. We handpicked the equipment so that it reflects what is actually being used in today’s corporate IT environments. We use VMWare certified hardware that is on the VMWare hardware compatibility list and we follow the best practices in the industry.
This gives you the opportunity to experience what it is like to run your own applications and test on real servers with proper specs. You will be able to test systems and learn what works best for you. You may make mistakes that affect your virtual environment and application performance, without actually sacrificing real-life performance.
The easiest way to access our lab is with Citrix client. After signing up, you’ll receive a username and password to your own Management Station (Virtual PC). If you are connecting from a non-Windows based computer, you can use one of Citrix clients for Linux/Solaris/BSD/Mac OS.
We’ve have developed an exam prep engine that you can use to prepare yourself for taking on VMWare VCP. With the 100% pass rate, the exam tool that we have created for you is so effective that you are sure to pass the exam. Let us help you succeed and pass your VCP-410 exam.
The simulated exam will help you determine your weaknesses.
Our in-house developed virtual infrastructure certification is absolutely unique. It currently only covers VMWare, but soon it will cover Microsoft Hyper-V, and thus with one certification you can achieve tested levels of knowledge for two of the major virtual platforms available today. Participation in our lab training class is REQUIRED for CVIA and CVIDE certification. If you can pass CVIA exam then we guarantee you will succeed at your VCP exam.
We know you will find a lot of useful content on our website and we hope that our VMWare training program will help you become the next VMWare expert and build exciting virtual environments with lots of thought and personal touches!
