Introduction to Hyper-V and Microsoft Virtualization for VMware Pros–Free Classes

imageFREE is second only to winning the lottery or the trifecta. And free IT training can be worth its weight in Gold.

That’s why I wanted to tell you about some new free training our private cloud colleagues have put together and will be delivering this week. There are two new classes that will be delivered through the Microsoft Virtual Academy. These are:


  • Introduction to Hyper-V
  • Microsoft Virtualization for VMware Professionals

Three of our best private cloud deployment minds will be delivering these sessions: Symon Perriman, Jeff Woolsey and Matt McSpirit. We invite you to take advantage of this FREE offering!
