SCHAUMBURG, Ill., May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TrainSignal, the global leader in professional computer training, announced the release of their vSphere Advanced Networking course.

Advanced features of vSphere administration are the main focus of this deep dive virtualization training course authored by VCDX #49 Jason Nash. The main focus of the course is to expand administrators' knowledge of virtual networking in VMware vSphere 5 environments to meet the demands of increasingly agile data centers.

Successful VMware Networking utilizes the vSphere Distributed Switch (vDS) in order to improve management, monitoring, security and performance for the components of the hypervisor virtual switch. In this course, viewers will fully understand the functions and deployment of vDS and Network I/O Control (NIOC). This has the potential for increasing performance and security while managing overhead costs.

The core concepts highlighted in the course are:

  • Port Mirroring
  • vSwitches
  • vNIC and VMDirectPath
  • VLANs
  • vSphere Network Security
  • vSphere Distributed Switch Migration


This course on VMware Advanced Networking was created to address the widespread impact that virtualization technologies are having on datacenters. About the evolving relationship between networking and virtualization, Jason Nash explains, "When virtualization first became mainstream it did not impact networking to any great extent but those days are gone.  Today organizations want to have multiple active data centers with tier 1 applications running virtually while offering exceptional performance, security, and fault monitoring.  This has put a strain on traditional virtual networking concepts."

Jason Nash holds over 15 years of experience in IT, currently the Data Center Solutions Principal at Varrow. Having published several books on networking, Windows and Linux, and earned the titles of VCDX and vExpert, Jason is one of the leading authorities on virtualization and networking technologies.
