IT Virtualization

IT Virtualization

Technical Diploma

This program provides students the skills necessary to support a virtualized data center. The student will gain the skills needed to manage, configure and troubleshoot common virtualization issues and install virtual servers, workstations and applications to support an IT data center in a corporate environment.
Virtual technologies are becoming critical to today's companies. Why? Computer virtualization allows multiple individual operating systems to be run and controlled on a single physical server. Machine virtualization allows companies to support the number of servers and/or workstations they require for business functionality while minimizing the amount of physical hardware required. The result is decreased hardware cost, decreased electrical requirements, decreased cooling requirements, and decreased physical space requirement
