New Course - vSphere 4: Fast Track

You won't find this listed publicly yet on the VMware Education web site, but the Fast Track course for vSphere 4 now has an official Datasheet. You'll find it at:

The additional content over and above the recently launched Install, Configure, Manage course is as follows:

  • vSphere Management Assistant
  • Network and storage troubleshooting
  • Resource monitoring through the CLI
  • vCenter Server Linked Mode
  • Distributed Power Management
  • Fault Tolerance
  • vCenter Server Heartbeat
  • Host Profiles
  • Scripted installations of ESX

It is my understanding that the course will be available from this August, but I'm still waiting for the release date to be made official. I know that a lot of folk are waiting to attend this.

Global Knowledge will be creating a full schedule of dates for the vSphere Fast Track in due course, and I'll be the first of our VMware instructors to deliver it - watch this space!

UPDATE: Global Knowledge are running the first vSphere Fast Track in the UK on September 28th in London:


  1. There’s also a datasheet available for the VMware View: Design Best Practices - Beta [V4] course.

  2. Thanks for the heads-up Eric, I was half-way through typing my other new post on the View course when you left your comment :-)
