Comments from former lab participants

 

"If I had attended the course six months ago, my company would have saved about 600 000 SEK in unnecessary hardware! Thanks Marcus and Michael for the invaluable knowledge that you have given me and my colleague!"

- Lab participant, Building a Datacenter or Private Cloud 2015
 

"The knowledge and capacity of the presenters are, by far, much better than for any other training I did before. The labs were almost flawless. Priceless!"
- Lab participant, Advanced Operating System Deployment 2015
 
"The real helpful information about these Products, that are not documented and real use case or special configurations were discussed. These instructors have real world consultant experience on these Products with small and large implementations. As well, are known and respected MVP's of the technologies."
