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
|Course #||Course Title||Credits|
This course is designed as an introduction to data network technology. It is the first in a series of three courses leading toward Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification. Students will gain a basic understanding of routers and switches, their function and how to perform initial configurations in the Internetwork Operating System (IOS) of these devices.
