Students Get Hands-On in VMware Forum

  • May 03, 2013

Olivet University IT Students participated in an online VMware Forum for a hands-on experience about VMware's virtualization software. The session allowed participants to learn about VMware IT products and solutions for enhanced mobility, utilization of cloud, and security.  VMware uses cloud-computing software providing virtualization for servers and operating systems.  

The forum’s online chat with VMware experts and live break out sessions allowed deeper discussion of proper implementation and setup.  IT students work with the virtualization software and hardware to improve management and organization of personal desktops.  Collaborating with IT professionals and forums, the team worked on a sample entry level enterprise solution that acts as a training ground towards setting up a larger mid-range solution.  Part of the university’s R&D department are already utilizing virtualization to make IT services more accessible ranging from laptops, phones, and tablets.  

VMware will be having its 10th year anniversary of VMworld in San Francisco in August.  The event is expected to host 21,000 attendees this year. Olivet’s IT College plans to attend the event to engage with market leading technology for business and growth.
