The iShift Migration Team Is Partnering with Platform9 to Make It Happen

We are excited to announce our collaboration with Platform9 to facilitate VMware migration and enhance your virtualization solutions. This hands-on lab is designed for VMware administrators who are considering KVM / OpenStack as an alternative hypervisor, but are either new to OpenStack or are concerned about the complexity of operating OpenStack.

Our engineers running the labs have extensive experience using VMware. Our goal is to provide a high level of interactivity and guidance during the sessions.

There is no cost to participate in the lab. Platform9 will provide the hardware for the lab. All you have to do is ensure your networks allow outbound SSH connectivity.
