I’ve done a lot of training courses in my career. A lot of them were disappointing as they never met my expectations. I guess the ones that did meet my expectations, or even exceeded them, were mainly VMware related. Especially the DSA course rocked. But there’s a new training in town, and it just claimed the crown… VMware vSphere: Manage for Performance!
I read the course material this week and I can honestly say that it rocks! Of course I did not expect anything less becauseVMware’s performance guru Scott Drummonds was involved in developing this course. (Scott wrote an article about the training a month ago, you can find it here.) Below you will find a short description.
This hands-on training course explores the management of performance in a VMware vSphere™ environment. It provides the knowledge and skills necessary to make fundamental design decisions that enhance performance and to meet performance goals in an already-deployed vSphere installation. The course is based on VMware® ESX™ 4.0, ESXi 4.0, and vCenter™ Server 4.0.
Like I said, heavily recommended for everyone!
