Self-Study Lab Rentals

Dedicated vSphere 6.7 ready-to-use Lab Rentals designed for anyone who needs to do advanced VMware vSphere 6.7 hands-on work. 

Why Rent Labs?
People rent our advanced labs for many reasons including:
  • VMware Certified Professional - DataCenter Virtualization (VCP-DCV) certification exam preparation
  • VMware Advanced Certified Professional - Datacenter Virtualization (VCAP) certification exam preparation
  • To practice upgrading to earlier vSphere environments to vSphere 6.7
  • To safely learn new features
  • To test out new features and capabilities in a safe environment
  • Because they don't have the hardware or licenses needed to practice at work
  • Build skill, knowledge and confidence needed to help you advance in your career
  • Practice upgrades, reconfiguration or other major changes in a non-production environment
  • Gain immediate access to fully functional labs (includes DNS, DHCP, AD, iSCSI, etc.) rather than trying to build everything yourself
  • All needed media images are provided in your lab rental
This lab rental work perfectly ONLY with our VMware vSphere 6.7 Optimize, Upgrade, Troubleshoot class.

Each lab rental includes a copy of our VMware vSphere 6.7 Optimize, Upgrade, Troubleshoot Lab Guide.

We need a minimum of one business day advanced notice to provision and release your labs.

Our labs are dedicated to each customer (not shared) and are available 24hrs/day during the lab rental period.

Each server pod contains:

  • A remote Windows Server 2008 R2 desktop to access your lab environment (access via a web browser or RDP / RDS)

  • An Active Directory server configured for the domain
  • Full DNS and DHCP services
  • An iSCSI SAN with 5 generously sized volumes (4x30GB and 1x50GB LUNs) for ESXi shared storage labs
