DescriptionPrerequisites: CTS1111 and CTS1390. This course provides students with a background in virtualization technology which serves as a precursor to cloud-based and distributive computing. The course includes an overview of virtualization technology with lectures dedicated to current virtualization products: VMware Workstation, VMware Server, Microsoft Virtual PC, Microsoft Virtual Server, and Hyper-V. Additional lectures focus on using virtualization software in networked server environments and include building virtual networks, implementing high-availability clusters, enhancing performance and security, and using VMware VSphere and Microsoft Virtual Machine Manager to centralize management of multiple virtual servers. Many hands-on activities are included, which allow the student to work with virtual computing concepts, using real-world situations to build the skills necessary for a successful understanding of virtualization.
