Train Signal, Inc the global leader in professional computer training, announced the release of its new VMware vSphere PowerCLI Training course.
VMware vSphere PowerCLI extends the functionality of Windows PowerShell with an array new of cmdlets specifically designed for managing VMware servers. In fact, PowerCLI comes with more cmdlets than are shipped with PowerShell by default. These commands are a powerful tool to automate, configure and customize virtual environments of all shapes and sizes.
With so many features and functions available, just getting a handle on which cmdlets offer the most value can be a difficult task. Fortunately, Train Signal's VMware vSphere PowerCLI Training jumps right into getting started with PowerCLI and using its tools to manage any virtual environment. Hands-on lab work and true to life scenarios ensure that students can master using the PowerCLI tools and implement them in a real world environment. In addition, the course covers Section 8 of the VMware VCAP-DCA exam.
The fast pace allows advanced users to take their PowerCLI skills to the next level, but does require that students have some familiarity with PowerCLI or PowerShell. Matt Elias, Train Signal's Product Team Manager said, "This is a perfect all-in-one PowerCLI crash course for VMware administrators who want to master vSphere automation quickly. The training is fast-paced and goes from the basics to advanced commands while preparing you for the PowerCLI portion of the VMware VCAP-DCA exam."
This comprehensive course delivers over 11 hours of instruction packed onto three DVDs. Twelve different lessons cover using PowerCLI cmdlets and best practices. These powerful functions allow administrators to easily gather data about their vSphere environment and to do more in less time with fewer errors. Furthermore, students learn how to automate ESX configuration, automate creation of new virtual machines and how to automate configuration of vSwitches and Datastores.
David David, VMware vExpert, explaining why Power CLI is so useful to VMware administrators said, "PowerCLI is great for mass administration, where you have to change 500 virtual machines and you're able to do it in minutes instead of hours. It is a huge time saver and allows you to work smarter and more efficiently. As I was preparing for the VMware VCAP-DCA exam, I realized just how important PowerCLI is and how vital it is to every vSphere administrator."
The instructor for Train Signal's VMware vSphere PowerCLI Training is Hal Rottenberg. Rottenberg is a system engineer with over 13 years of IT experience. He is a Microsoft PowerShell MVP and VMware vExpert. In addition, he is the author of "Managing VMware Infrastructure with PowerShell: TFM" published by SAPIEN Press. Rottenberg also co-hosts the PowerScripting Podcast and heads the PowerShell Community organization.
