Woodland Hills, CA, United States, 2011/06/14 - Metron’s Summer School provides a short sharp high intensity training class in performance and capacity management of VMware environments - Metron-Athene.com.
Time is money and both time and money are in short supply. Hard pressed professionals are finding it ever harder to justify time out of the office for training.
Metron training is delivered as four one hour web-based training sessions taking place on July 12 and 26 and August 9 and 23. Off-line catch up is available for students who can’t make a specific class. In addition to lecture, interactive elements such as quizzes and practical exercises are used to consolidate learning.
No more than a basic understanding of VMware concepts and architecture is required to derive benefit from the class and all concepts, advice and recommendation are ‘product agnostic’ and thus do not rely on any non-standard VMware or third party tools being available.
The class has been designed for anyone who has an interest in ensuring good performance of their VMware systems and anyone who has ever encountered a performance problem with VMware.
This encompasses anyone who needs to enhance their ability to identify VMware performance issues and tune their environment to provide better levels of service.
The content of the Summer School suits both VMware specific staff and those who need to know more to help in their own sphere of influence, even though they are not specifically VMware technicians.
Attendees who will get most from the course are probably working in areas such as VMware system administration, performance management, capacity management, infrastructure management, network administration, database administration and application support.
Andrew Smith Chief Sales & Marketing officer at Metron commented “Work schedules and the need to be ‘on the job’ have made it increasingly difficult for people to justify attendance at training courses. At Metron we recognise this fact and have come up with a series of online training sessions. If work schedules mean a delegate can’t make a session they can catch up by listening to the recording at any time up to two weeks after that class.”
Delegates will be taught to deal with identifying headroom for additional VMs in a Cluster, Dynamic Resource Scheduling, setting up Resource Pools, Vmware KPI’s, identifying Idle and Oversized VMs, the best way to present reports to end-users and much more.
Andrew Smith continued “After attending our Summer School delegates will be able to identify common performance and capacity issues with VMware and implement a structured approach to resolving them. We aim to help them understand and manage the interaction of key system components and see through issues masking the root cause of a problem and resolve that root cause.”
Anyone involved in planning, provisioning and troubleshooting performance issues with VMware systems will benefit from attending Summer School and full details of the course are available at metron-athene.com/.
