Vigilar's Intense School Announces New VMware Boot Camp

Intense School, the training division of Vigilar, and a leading provider of IT and security training services, today announced the availability of a new VMware Boot Camp, which includes the industry's most comprehensive security training for VMware. As organizations continue to deploy virtual machines throughout their environment, and make them a critical part of their infrastructure, the ability to manage and secure these machines becomes crucial to overall security posture.

Intense School's new VMware training course provides four days of hands-on VMware ESX training by Intense School's virtualization experts. Topics covered in depth include ESX Server 3.5, VirtualCenter 2.5, Storage VMotion, Update Manager, Distributed Power Management, and VMware Guided Consolidation. In addition, instructors will review 3rd party tools to help assist in the deployment and management of a virtual infrastructure.

The Boot Camp will include four key areas of security training for VMware:

-- ESX Host Security
-- Virtual Center Security
-- Virtual Machines Security
-- SAN Security

Together, these elements provide organizations with a comprehensive plan for securing their virtual infrastructure and networks.

Is this another way to sell a Linux security training? I don't know but its blogworthy purely because they are addressing security and not because it is not being addressed in production by firms serious about their business.
