VMware Training

VMware is the clear choice for server virtualisation and cloud infrastructure.

VMware solutions help businesses reduce their costs while improving availabilities and efficiencies in their IT environment. With VMware pretty much everything can be virtualized including servers, storage, networking and it also provides a more secure, dependable and purpose-built platform that's optimised to help businesses move forward.

VMware Virtualization

VMware's virtual infrastructure design provides businesses with the capability to virtualize their entire data centre allowing them to automate and control all their data resources. When a business moves its critical applications to virtual machines it needs a platform it can trust. That is why over 350,000 enterprises run their businesses on VMware vSphere! 50% of servers worldwide are currently running on vSphere and VMware powers over 8000 server provider partners.

VSphere is the only truly thin bare-metal x86 virtualisation architecture. All others: Hyper-v, Xen, and KVM are built on general-purpose Windows or Linux operating systems. V-Sphere's freedom from the reliability, security and patching issues that come with any general purpose OS is key to VMware's trustworthy reputation.

VMware Design, Installation and Support Services

Installing, configuring and maintaining VMware installations is technically challenging and requires skilled personnel. As well as providing training in these areas we can also provide access to specialist engineering resources and support staff with the infrastructure in place to help design and deploy or provide skilled support should that be needed. We can provide several case studies (watch this space for write-ups to follow) demonstrating our experience and commitment to long-term customer support.

For large-scale deployments it's prudent to call on external sources of expertise for planning and deployment: subsequent to deployment a different skill set is required to provide ongoing maintenance and support services. We and our partners specialise in these areas and we will be glad to assist if asked.
