If you're a PlateSpin Protect or PlateSpin Forge customer you're going to want to take a look at Course 8017, recently made available for purchase as an elearning deliverable in Novell On-demand. This course, titled Workload Management Administration with PlateSpin Protect, is a very strong piece of training. My team received unprecedented contributions from the PlateSpin product team in the development of the content in this course.
The product team wanted content that went deeper, technically, than the content we had previously released on the Protect product. In order to help us accomplish that objective, they gave us a lot of their time and wrote a lot of the content themselves. The result is a course that not only covers how to install and configure the PlateSpin Protect server, but also goes into the following:
- What you need to do to Implement the Forge Appliance
- The tasks associated with Protecting a Workload
- The steps for Testing and Recovering Workloads in Protect and Forge
- The tools and processes used to Support Protect and Forge (including how to troubleshoot common problems).
With this much deep coverage of the product, it's just an all-around great course.
