How can VMware certification benefit you?

VMware is a versatile certification that is suited to a variety of job roles. IT jobs within the UK often cite VMware as a popular choice of IT course when applying for and working for large IT firms.

VMware Methodology

The VMware design methodology is broken down into three or sometimes four phases:

The first phase is the architectural vision, during which the scope will be defined, requirements listed and goals assigned. This will serve as a guide for the rest of the project. The second is the architectural analysis. This is a much more in-depth look at the existing infrastructure. Information is gathered and analysed on existing servers, storage and networks. This information will be needed later on, so compiling detailed notes is vital. The third phase is the technology architecture, where all the information recorded earlier or is used to create conceptual, logical and physical designs. The fourth stage, if used, is a migration planning phase, where the information is valuable for their migration from physical to virtual.
