Description

This subject aims to provide students with the necessary skills to Architect for Virtualization and Private Cloud. To provide students with the necessary skills to build and configure Virtualization infastructure using Server Virtualization Technology.To provide students with the necessary skills to build and configure a Private Cloud infastructure.

 

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

The student will be able to Plan and Design Virtual Infastructure 

2.

The student will be able to build the Resource Pool for Virtualization

3.

The student will be able to build and configure Virtualization infastructure using Server Virtualization Technology.

4.

The student will be able to build and configure Private Cloud infastructure

Module Assessment Strategies

The module will be assessed by configuring and troubleshooting Virtualization Resource Pool throughout the module using the following technologies , Physical Servers, Virtual Servers , Citrix Virtualization Software,System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012)
