VMware View
Virtual Desktop Deployment
Course Description
VMware View class offers participants the most extensive training available in the Installation, Configuration and Management of VMware View 5. Each participant will work Hands-On with real servers to build and administrate their own complete VMware View 5 environment from the ground up.

The primary reason that our course offers participants a more comprehensive experience than other courses is that each student gets to install and configure a complete VMware vSphere 5 environment designed specifically to support Virtual Desktops. While other providers cover Virtual Desktops as an isolated topic we believe that an understanding of the infrastructure (VMware vSphere 5) provides participants with an invaluable insight into the functionality of their VMware View 5 environment!

Once the infrastructure has been provisioned, participants install VMware View 5 and begin the process of learning how to maximize their administrative efficiency while managing VMware View 5 environments while maintaining the highest levels of Virtual Desktop security. During class we focus on Real-World Virtual Desktop deployment scenarios using the available GUI tools the vSphere Client, vCenter Server, and the VMware View Manager.

Our VMware View 5 Virtual Desktop Deployment follows true Cloud Practice in deploying Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Because we provision completely separate resources for each participant, everybody gets unique firewall rules, and everybody gets to connect separately to hisher Virtual Desktop environment from the internet, when it is complete!.

The VMware View 5 Virtual Desktop Deployment class features over 50 hands-on Step-By-Step Labs (SBS LAB), complete with detailed instructions, full-color documentation and screenshots of all steps. The book alone is sure to become one of the most valued reference materials in your library and more...

Each participant will build hisher own unique VMware vSphere and VMware View 5 environment from the ground up. On class completion, participants will have a functioning VMware View 5 datacenter environment "In the Cloud," accessible from a variety of locations and environments.
