Next week I’ll attend the VMware vSphere Manage for Performance Train The Trainer course. The Manage for Performance course equips administrators with the knowledge and skills to monitor and troubleshoot a vSphere installation. It’ll also cover fundamental design decisions to enhance performance.
Scott Drummonds who has been working for VMware since January of 2007 is the man behind this new course. He participates in a wide variety of performance issues including VDI, performance problem solving, field support, competitive analysis, and general marketing activities:
Nearly a year ago I approached the VMware Education Services about designing a single or multiple day class focused on performance management, troubleshooting performance problems, and designing solutions for maximum performance. I cited the perennial popularity of the VMworld performance troubleshooting lab as a demonstration of the potential market for this class. I am incredibly pleased to announce that the content for this class is complete and we are soon to be offering it to the general public.
Since I participated in the beta “shakedown” of the class with you, I cannot talk highly enough of the content and result! The overall content is what customers have asked us for over the past few years, and I am not only suggesting that my customer accounts attend the training, but that EVERY VMW SE, PSO, etc, engineer take it as well! Really impressed and excited to see more of this type of depth in training continue to come out of the ed folks!
I’ve already received the instructor guide and can tell you one thing, awesomeness! The course schedule and datasheet are available at VMware’s MyLearn education portal.
