Virtualizing Servers for the Cloud

This path is meant to enhance the knowledge base of any learner who works with cloud technologies, or wishes to begin understanding cloud deployments


Expected Duration
73 minutes

Maximizing all physical resource utilization should be a primary goal for all datacenter deployments. For servers, you can accomplish this by breaking up a physical server into multiple logical servers. In this course you will explore the purpose of a hypervisor in server virtualization and be introduced to VMWare, Hyper-V, XenServer, and KVM. This course is one of a series in the SkillSoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Cisco exam Understanding Cisco Cloud Fundamentals exam (210-451 CLDFND). This exam counts toward the CCNA Cloud certification.
