Training Engineering a Citrix Virtualization Solution – 5 days

Class overview :

The CVE-400-2 Engineering a Citrix Virtualization Solution (also known as CVE-4002, CVE4002, CVE-4002) course teaches Citrix engineers how to plan for and perform the tasks necessary to successfully integrate the component technologies that make up a Citrix virtualization solution in a Windows Server 2008 environment.

Class goals :

Upon successful completion of this course, learners will be able to:

  • Explain the benefits and considerations for VM storage, including local host disk, iSCSI SAN, Fibre Channel SAN and NFS SAN.
  • Explain how network considerations, including network topology, utilization requirements and the number of interfaces, affect a virtualization host server.
