Cloud and Virtualization Essentials

4 Days

Description

Learn the business and technical perspectives of both virtualization and cloud computing.

In this course, a back-to-back combination of our two-day Virtualization Essentials and two-day Cloud Essentials courses, you will learn how to adopt, operate, and govern the various technologies and business models related to virtualization and cloud computing. You will prepare to successfully complete two associated exams, and you will be provided exam vouchers for these web-based exams:

  • Cloud Essentials exam
  • Virtualization Essentials exam

Through scenario-driven learning, you will apply the principles in a realistic setting. Role-play activities present a real world connection using situations that can occur in your day-to-day life.

The course materials are accredited by the Cloud Credential Council, marked as CompTIA approved quality content and registered with the Project Management Institute.

For classroom sessions, the web-based Virtualization Essentials exam will be offered on the second day of class and the web-based Cloud Essentials exam will be offered on the last day of class. For virtual sessions, you will receive exam vouchers for the web-based exams.
