VMware vSphere design and best practises cources

VMware is currently releasing quite a few new courses on vSphere. Two courses targeted at design and best practises for vSphere have been announced.

The first course is a two day course for VMware Partners only called VMware vSphere 4: Design Best Practices (Partner Only).  Expected release by VMware is April 2010.

This course is part of the VMware Partner University post-sales Infrastructure Virtualization competency track. This course explores the foundational principles of designing a VMware vSphere 4.0 virtual datacenter architecture consisting of VMware ESX/ESXi 4.0 and VMware vCenter Server 4.0. While not a prerequisite, this course is helpful in becoming a VMware Certified Design Expert.

 Students completing this course must complete other courses to gain post-sales Infrastructure Virtualization competency.

The course is designed for VMware partner post-sales technical professionals seeking VMware competency in Infrastructure Virtualization.

Module 1: Course Introduction

-Sets the expectations and provides a general overview of the course

Module 2: Design Process

 Module 3: Current State Analysis

 Module 4: Design Decisions

 Module 5: Design Considerations

This course is an instructor-led training course with classroom discussion, demonstrations and the practical application of concepts through hands-on exercises, with official VMware courseware.
