San Francisco - Your Training Destination
Our SF Boot Camps are a fantastic way to enjoy the unique flavors that the region offers. When you take this Boot Camp
at our San Francisco Bay Area campus, you can look forward
to enjoying world famous destinations for travel and food.

Hands-on intensive labs expose the student to the advanced capabilities of ESX 5.1 server, using both the vSphere Management Assistant and vCenter Server. Prior exposure to Linux is a plus, but the skills necessary for the labs will be taught during the boot camp. The course is written to modern-day IT professionals, with a basic understanding of TCP/IP networking, Windows 2003 server management, and x86 hardware fundamentals, but assumes no previous experience in the field of virtualization.

Each VMware student will install and configure "VMware ESX 5.1" on an individual Dell PowerEdge 1850 server, with dual Xeon 3.2 GHz processors, and 70GB of internal SCSI storage. ESX hosts will then be clustered, and configured to use an iSCSI shared storage array, for the VMFS datastore to support VMotion, HA, and DRS.
