Just after MMS 2011, Microsoft Learning hosted another new and exclusive Jump Start virtual training event – “Microsoft Virtualization for VMware Professionals.” We are thrilled to announce availability of the HD-quality video recordings – FREE – on TechNet Edge, MS Showcase, the Zune Marketplace, iTunes! Additionally, every module will be made available (with assessment questions) on the Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA) later this month.

- IT Professionals, Virtualization Engineers, Data Center Managers, IT Decision Makers, Network Administrators, Storage/Infrastructure Administrators & Architects.
- Microsoft customers and partners currently using VMware.
- Companies using VMware searching for real-world answers as they consider whether or not Microsoft Virtualization truly fits their needs.
What’s the high-level overview?
- The 15-hour course is broken into three sections: (1) Platform, (2) Management, and (3) VDI
- “Team-teaching” approach led by Microsoft partner and virtualization architect, Corey Hynes, and Microsoft Technical Evangelist, Symon Perriman
