We entered the VMware Training segment as the leading vendor independent virtualization training organization in India, with more than fifteen years of expertise in the training segment as well as network consultancy , we offer the best of hands on training and industrial exposure to our data center students . The session we are offering in VMware will be mapped to industrial scenarios of of Vsphere 4.1 and 5.1 and 5.5 and 6.0 environment plus additional exposure to third party tools and storage management solutions. Apart from that we start from the very basics of SCSI management , RAID implementation NAS , NFS and SAN storage concepts and a strong background of Microsoft ADS and Linux environment before we venture in to train you in Data center virtualization.
With an ISO -9001-2008 certified facility in Network training , we ensure that you will be given a quality training that will be in par with international standards.

With a well equipped lab facility complete with Industry grade servers , KVM switches , RAID controllers , gigabit LAN facility and 100 % hands on lab on ESXi installed on bare metals and storage boxes which support NFS ,CIFS and iSCSI we ensure that you will be confident to face the real world issues once you complete our training session
- It is not an official vmware training session and will not serve you towards the prerequisite of passing VCP examination . Please check the FAQ section of our website for more explanation on why this training session is still relevant to a network professions seeking a better carrier .
FAQ Answered in Malayalam Language .
No , we are not an authorized training partner for vmware and we are conducting our own track of courses on virtualization and storage technologies .
For any IT infra organization , your skills in the product is the major concern than the certifications you possess . In tune with this philosphy , all the IT organizations like Microsoft , Cisco and the like will permit you to appear for their international certifications without attending their official curricula . But VMware holds a different policy regarding their certification process for VCP . Even if you can appear for the VCP exam through Pearson VUE and pass the exam , your e-certificate will not be generated until you appear for a mandatory Install, Configure , Manage boot camp .
First of all , the ICM camp offered by vmware is just a mandatory certification prerequest for the VCP exam. The topics covered on the ICM is not sufficient even for your VCP examination. The camp does not even cover the installation of the ESXi host on the beginning and all the industry relevant topics like distributed switch , Host profile ,vCenter -ODBC connectivity , BAckup solutions ,upgradation from previous 4.x generation products,Physical to virtual conversion are not part of the ICM. The storage management is one of the critical part of the software defined datacenter and the ICM covers only some basic slides of the storage part and no practical hands on is imparted on storage management . in short, Official training will suit you if you are already aware about the data center &storage management and networking and already implemented a VMware infrastructure in your environment and and just want to get your class ID for the e-certificate of VCP. Our training session is focused on an individual already comfortable with Microsoft and Cisco networks and who wish to get an in depth hands on session in virtualization and storage technologies.
