More About the Author
I have been working in the IT industry for more than 16 years and with VMware products for 12+ years. I have earned many vendor certifications over the years, from EMC, VMware, Microsoft, Novell, and CompTIA. My certifications include: VCP, VCAP, VCI, MCSE (NT 4, Windows 2000 & 2003), MCDBA, MCT, CNA, CNE, CNI, EMCSA, Network+, A+, and CTT+. I have taught, developed courses for, and consulted on many of these technologies, both for public clients and for customized, internal training for Fortune 500 companies. I have taught in North America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Australia and have met with success in each location.
My experience with virtualization began with VMware Workstation and progressed through various desktop and server products and releases, becoming a strong proponent of virtualization, especially using VMware products.
Today, I teach a variety of classes for various vendors, specializing in VMware's vSphere 4 and 5, SRM, and View, Dell and EMC storage, and how applications (such as SQL and Exchange) can best exploit these technologies.
