Metron offers one-day VMware Essentials capacity management training so that VMware users understand the underlying capacity issues of their systems, not just how one vendor capacity solution tries to handle them. Without this deeper and more fundamental understanding, organizations are getting caught by new issues as the virtualized world rapidly evolves.
VMware is still the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, delivering customer-proven solutions that accelerate IT by reducing complexity and enabling more flexible, agile service delivery.
Agility and flexibility allied with rapid expansion brings challenges. Virtualization makes it quicker and easier than ever before to make capacity mistakes. Without understanding the core issues in capacity management, users can become ‘locked in’ to ways of doing things that quickly become outmoded and inefficient solutions.
By attending VMware Essentials, delegates learn the underlying principles of capacity management from the experts, and how to apply those principles. This enables them to implement appropriate capacity management strategies no matter how the technology evolves.
Metron believe that virtualization brings a whole new set of challenges and has rapidly become too important to business success simply to leave to chance.
Andrew Smith CSMO commented “More than ever users need to understand the concepts that underpin capacity management for VMware. The concepts don’t change, but how you need to apply them to avoid wasting money changes all the time. As a minimum any organization needs a clear window onto what is happening on a day by day basis. In such a volatile environment, staff need to have access 24x7 to automatically updated information on where problems are, what options are available to resolve them and help in making those changes.”
Metron runs VMware Essentials, an intensive one-day workshop, focussed on Capacity Management and VMware performance. Capacity management personnel, VMware administration staff and Support personnel will all benefit from attending.
Andrew Smith, Metron CSMO added “ To meet demand we have added new dates and venues for our workshops. Previous attendees have come away from our events being able to identify common performance and capacity issues with VMware, a better understanding of the VMware terminology used and the ability to understand and manage the interaction of key system components.”
The one day workshop will ensure that attendees confidently monitor and report on the correct aspects of their infrastructure and will help them provide assurance to the business that the capacity of their VMware infrastructure is being managed effectively.
Details of Metron’s workshops being held across the US and UK are available on their website.
