So let me answer that for you:We have over 130 physical PC servers that are all VMware vSphere 5.1 certified and include full Fault Tolerance support. That is a lot of $$ tied up in serversWe rent space in a class A datacenter. Our datacenter partner provides very fast, low latency Internet connectivity that is highly redundant - so it is always availableWeve rented servers to customers in North America, South America, Asia, Australia, Europe, the United Kingdom and Africa. They all tell us the same thing... Its just like the servers are in the next room! The Lab Guide you will get is the result of months of work and is based on more than 9 years of working with VMware enterprise virtualization products. The author earned his first VCP certificate in 2004 and holds VCP in ESX 2 and 3, and vSphere 4.x and 5. The Lab Guide can act as a blueprint for you to build your own vSphere environment. Dont start from first principles. Use our design and get the job done fastFinally, this is actually about 50% of the cost of our normal server rental fee. We are discounting our servers to provide individuals with a cost effective way to get access to a professionally designed and implemented vSphere lab at last-minute prices. FAQs Q. What if I run out of time... A. E-mail us and we will work with you to ensure you have the time you need to successfully complete the labs Q. Can I get the Study Guide or Lab Guide in printed format? A. Yes. Please contact us for more details on printed versions of our courseware. Q. Is basic DSL service good enough to access your remote labs? A. Yes. If you have 256kb DSL or faster, then you are good to go. Q. Can I test Lab Access before I buy so that I can be sure I can access your remote labs? A. Yes. Contact us for details on how you can perform a connectivity test to our remote labs. Q. I would like a sample of the training material before I commit. Is one available? A. Yes.
