International Learning Partnership With VMware
Cary, N.C., and London
Global Knowledge, a provider of IT and business training, announced a worldwide partnership with VMware, a provider of virtualization solutions.
Virtualization training is a growing requirement for IT departments in businesses of all sizes. Global Knowledge is a VMware Authorized Training Center partner throughout North America, the Middle East and many European countries.
“We are committed to helping our customers with focused, hands-on virtualization training,” said Joe Cece, Global Knowledge president and CEO. “With training programs that are consistent, effective and taught by real-world experts, we can help companies with the successful deployment of their virtualization strategies.”
With 2007 revenues of $1.3 billion, VMware is one of the fastest growing public software companies. VMware’s server and desktop virtualization software helps IT departments turn single physical machines into several virtual ones running side-by-side, thereby giving IT professionals greater resource utilization and flexibility.
“Demand is significantly growing for customer and channel partner VMware training,” said Jason Martin, vice president of VMware professional services. “As an industry leader with a worldwide footprint, Global Knowledge is uniquely positioned to help meet the huge training demand through solutions that help our customers and partners deploy our software and enable our company’s continued leadership in virtualization solutions.”
Global Knowledge is currently delivering VMware training internationally in both public classroom settings and in private, customer on-site training venues.
