Windows clustering

A 3 day
training course

Windows clustering training course description

This course covers high availability and disaster recovery technologies such as live migration, storage migration and Hyper-V Replica, as well as providing indepth coverage of failover clustering including a detailed implementation of failover clustering of Hyper- V using SoFS. The course also covers System Center Virtual Machine Manager and implementing Network Load Balancing (NLB) and load balancing clusters.

Key outcomes from this course

By the end of the course delegates will be able to:
  • Plan and implement a failover cluster.
  • Describe managing server roles and clustering resources.
  • Implement and manage virtual machines.
  • Use System Center Virtual Machine Manager.
  • Describe cloud-based storage and high availability solutions.
  • Implement a Network Load Balancing (NLB) cluster.

Why Choose Us

SNT trainers score an average of over 90% on the three main areas of:
  • Ability to teach
  • Technical knowledge
  • Answering questions
“Excellently presented by a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic trainer.” P.D. General Dynamics

We limit our maximum class size to 8 delegates; often we have less than this. This ensures optimal interactivity between delegates and instructor.
"Excellent course. The small class size was a great benefit…" M.B. IBM

We write our own courses; courseware does not just consist of slides and our slides are diagrams not bullet point text. A typical chapter provides clearly defined objectives with a chapter overview, slides with text underneath, a quiz at the end to check the learning of the students. Hands on exercises are at the end and are used to reinforce the theory.
