Touro College Graduate School of Technology offers a number of courses that allow students to extensively experiment with the advanced software skills required for many jobs in the technology industry. Among the elective classes in the Master of Science in Information Systems program, the Virtualization course taught by alumnus Azarya Shaulov is perhaps one of the most hands-on and intriguing for students who wish to become System Administrators or Systems Engineers.
In the course students work with VMware ESXI 5.x and vCenter Server 5.x. They learn how to create templates, Virtual Machines, set up virtual networks, and create, administer, and manage Clusters, High Availability, in addition to DRS rules.
Working with VMware vSphere virtualization software allows students to become competent in a variety of data management and protection skills. Students use the vCenter Server to monitor resource usage, increase scale, configure and manage networking and storage, along with managing data protection.
The real life application of virtualization for businesses is to reduce downtime and minimize losses by creating a flexible datacenter with reliable server and solutions. This helps to release applications more quickly, simplify a business’ infrastructure, and save on IT costs.
This course is necessary for a certification as a VMware Professional in Datacenter Center Virtualization (VCP-DCV), but it is also beneficial to anyone who strives to become a System Administrator, Systems Engineer, or operator for ESXi and vCenter Server. The prerequisite for this course is System Administration experience with Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems, along with TCP/IP knowledge.
