by Ron Grattopp……The “Cloud” and Virtualization are arguably the two hottest topics in the industry today, and Microsoft has some great technology for you leverage in your customer solutions portfolio in both of those spaces. If you didn’t already know about it, the Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA) is a free and public portal for training related to Microsoft’s cloud and virtualization solutions. Check it out at: www.MicrosoftVirtualAcademy.com.
I get questions all the time from partners around trying to understand Azure, so here’s an example of one training around that that you could leverage and get 100 points (over 1/4 of the way to Silver level) for your efforts.
And here’s a brief rundown of the some of the new virtualization training available on MVA
· Virtualization Overview
· Differentiating Microsoft & VMware
· Hyper-V Deployment Options & Architecture
Also, be advised that in the near future we will be adding tracks about datacenter management (through System Center) and VDI as well.
Hopefully this is something that will be very useful to you. Enjoy!
