Virtualized Data Center and Cloud Infrastructure Planning and Design

מק"ט: #66641 | משך קורס: 40 שעות אק'

This course covers in-depth details and considerations for planning, designing and migrating a traditional data center to Virtualized Data Center (VDC) and Cloud Infrastructures. This course uses an ‘open’ approach focusing on core concepts, principles, and technologies, rather than specific products. To provide context, the course and certification include EMC and partner specific examples.
