IT Trainer

My name is Pakalavan. I have 16 years of experience in IT industry, and have been using VMware's products for solving IT problems. In 2001, I started my journey as Technical Support Executive, and gradually worked my way to become a Team Manager supporting enterprise IT customers. Throughout this journey, it has always been as identifying, troubleshooting and finding a solution apt for a problem, be it hardware or software. One such solution is what virtualization offers to the problems faced in datacenters. I have taken the time out of my schedule to bring out an exhaustive e-learning course on virtualization. In this course, I have tried to lay a strong foundation for those who want to learn about virtualization from the basics, and for those who would like to make it as a career. The course is backed by video-demonstrations, graphics, and captions.
