PHILADELPHIA -- September 15, 2003 -- announces a new training program focused on helping technology professionals get the most out of virtual machine technology. DesktopEngineer.comÂ’s product-neutral approach allows training to focus on critical techniques while reinforcing these techniques through hands-on VMWare training exercises and Virtual PC training exercises.

“A vendor-neutral approach has worked extremely well in’s industry leading Windows Installer Training and Certification program,” said Darwin Sanoy, Training Manager at “Students like the practical application of technology to solve real world challenges, while product vendors benefit from technology professionals who understand how to leverage their products to increase productivity and reduce costs.”

In a time when budgets are tight, virtual machine technology can dramatically reduce costly resource and logistics constraints in IT projects. Virtual machines can boost the bottom line with hard-dollar savings in hardware costs and significant gains in productivity. “By making hardware into a virtual resource, this tecnology can also dramatically reduce the cost of logistics for large projects,” noted Sanoy. “These frequently hidden costs include things such as multi-team shared lab coordination, global and regional hardware availability, enterprise-wide configuration consistency and coordination of shared server and infrastructure resources.”

“Building and Managing Virtual Machines” gives students a solid foundation in what virtual machine technology is, how it can benefit them and how to build virtual machines to enhance individual productivity. The advanced course builds on this foundation with techniques for managing virtual machines for a team or an entire company.
