Printer friendly

Course Overview
  This hands-on, highly accelerated five-day bootcamp combines the content of 6422 (three-day Hyper-V course) and 6331 (three-day SCVMM 2008 course) into an accelerated version of the two courses. Along with content from 6422 and 6331, the bootcamp also covers Hyper-V R2 and SCVMM 2008 R2. As an added bonus, students will receive hands-on Hyper-V R2 clustering/Live Migration, which is not available in standard 6422 or 6331.

Student feedback has provided that the overwhelming majority of those who have taken the 6422 Hyper-V course would have preferred to have the content delivered in a five-day, highly in-depth format with more coverage of SCVMM 2008 R2.
