In my job as a VMware Certified Instructor I teach the VMware Horizon View courses, so I’m pleased to announce the arrival of a new VMware Horizon course.

VMware Mirage [V5.0] and Horizon View [6.0]: Fast Track


This extended-hours, hands-on training course provides students with skills that they need to deploy a unified image management system using VMware Mirage™ as well as installing, configuring, and managing the VMware Horizon™ View™ component of VMware Horizon™. Students learn how to configure security, manage images, perform a Windows migration, set up endpoint protection, and perform various management functions with Mirage. Students will also gain practical experience with View concepts through the completion of hands-on labs that include VMware View® Manager™, VMware View® Composer™, and the View security server.
