This VMware vSphere video training course with Keith Barker covers VMware’s flagship virtualization platform.

The videos are fun, short, and Keith will make sure he provides everything you need to follow right along with him in your home office! That’s right – learn by doing! If you have been putting off this valuable skill area, do not hesitate any longer!
