I am excited to say that with the launch of vSphere 5, TrainSignal and I are also announcing the release of our new vSphere 5 video training course!
I worked with vExpert and veteran vSphere instructor, Elias Khnaser to create this 16+ hour course. In this course, we both cover the installation, configuration, and management of vSphere as well as all the powerful new features of vSphere 5.
Of the 36 lessons in the course, here are some that I find most exciting (and I think you will too):
- What’s New in vSphere 5
- Installing vCenter 5 as a Linux Appliance (vCSA)
- Using the vSphere 5 Web-Client
- Auto Deploy
- Profile-Driven Storage
- vRAM Pooled Pricing
- Administering vSphere 5 with an iPad
- vSphere Storage Appliance (VSA)
Besides numerous lessons on new vSphere 5 features, Elias and I will give you all the knowledge you need to administer vSphere 5 effectively. We’ll cover topics like Installing ESXi 5, Virtual Infrastructure Storage, Connecting vSphere to a Free OpenFiler iSCSI SAN, Administering vSphere Security, VMHA, DRS, Fault Tolerance, Storage IO Control, VMware Data Recovery (new version 2), and much more!
Additionally, if you are a VCP4 you’ll want to learn vSphere 5 as quickly as possible because you only have until February 29, 2012 to upgrade to VCP5 without having to take a VMware Education course all over again. Our vSphere 5 training will give you a big head start on getting your VCP5!
Plus, if you purchase this course today, you will receive immediate online access and a DVD of the course for “learning on the go”. That DVD will contain the files needed to watch the course on your portable media player (like an iPhone) or listen to the course on your MP3 player or in the car.
The bottom line is that vSphere 5 is here, it offers so many new features, and if you want to keep your VCP current and upgrade to the VCP5, there's no time to waste!
