Get your Official VMware vSphere certification in five days


Firebrand Training is excited to announce we now offer the official VMware ® vSphere 5.5 Fast Track (VCP) course.

The traditional route to VMware vSphere certification can be slow. After attending the five-day VMware Install, Configure, Manage course AND the five-day Optimize and Scale course, you’d still need to allow an extra day to sit the VCP exam.

Cut those 11 days to five on the VMware ® vSphere 5.5 Fast Track (VCP) course. In partnership with HP, Firebrand has combined VMware Install, Configure, Manage with the advanced elements of Optimize and Scale. You’ll also sit the official VMware VCP exam which is covered by the Firebrand Certification Guarantee.

Your fastest way to become a vSphere5.5 certified professional

The vSphere5.5 Fast Track packs in even more training time than the basic Install, Configure, Manage course. You’ll get:
  • 12 more hands-on labs
  • 11 extra modules
  • Up to 20 hours more learning time

You’ll have more time to study vSphere5.5 features on the Firebrand course – spend up to 12 hours in class with your instructor each day.

Get 24-hour access to your own dedicated server and master advanced virtualisation features like high availability and scalability.

Become a virtualisation visionary

Get an official certification from VMware, a company that accounts for 58% of the virtualisation market. 63% of IT professionals are responsible for managing virtualisation; Stand out from the crowd with an official vSphere5.5 cert. Become a VMware certified professional in just 5-days.

Everything you need to know about Cloud Auditing

What is Cloud Auditing?

"Cloud Auditing is the objective evaluation of whether risks to Cloud Customers have been adequately dealt with; that a Cloud Customer's compliance requirements will be met; and that the Cloud Provider has the necessary controls in place."

Gartner ranks virtualization and cloud computing as the CIO's top two technology priorities. But they come with new risks. The research shows that security, privacy and legality are the main concerns for organisations considering cloud-based computing. The key to addressing these complex interlocking problems is a mature, capable and Cloud Audit Program. 

The Virtualization & Cloud Audit Professional course examines these risks and how to manage them. It teaches you how to audit VMware and other cloud services.

Benefits of Cloud Auditing

  • Helps cloud consumers to build a solid business case for cloud computing and navigate the changing landscape without jeopardizing their risk postures
  • Helps Cloud Providers to understand what auditors look for before actually being audited and provide assurance towards their (prospective) client customers
  • Helps Governments and prudential supervisors (e.g. National Banks) to create audit standards & cloud assurance guidelines; and ensure that current policies are kept being reinforced in the Cloud

Role of a Cloud Auditor

  • Assess cloud architectures against critical compliance requirements and identify specific vulnerabilities & threats
  • Advise recommended controls to be deployed on the various levels
  • Audit for the presence and efficiency of said controls and provide assurance that stated designs are assured and working
  • Evaluate risks associated with cloud
  • Taking business to the cloud cannot compromise security. Auditing will help you identify vulnerabilities and threats - and keep your systems secure.
