CVF 2116 - Virtual End User Computing and Application Virtualization (VMware View: IC

Credits: 4

Course Description: This course explores the concept and techniques associated with delivering desktop services from a cloud computing environment to enable end-user freedom from IT management and control. This course uses VMware View to demonstrate how IT can simply automate the management of thousands of desktops and securely deliver “desktop as a service” to users from a central location at levels of availability and reliability unmatched by traditional PCs. Students explore, through hands-on labs, how to deliver secure access to applications and data to any device when and where users need it, thus giving end users maximum mobility and flexibility. The VMware Certified Professional - Desktop (VCP-DT) certification is part of this course.
