Veritas Cluster Server



Veritas Cluster Server is a high-availability cluster software for Unix, Linux and Microsoft Windows computer systems, created by Veritas Technologies. It provides application cluster capabilities to systems running other applications, including databases, network file sharing, and electronic commerce websites.

VCS course is designed for the IT professional tasked with installing, configuring, and maintaining VCS clusters. This program covers how to use VERITAS Cluster Server to manage applications in a high availability environment. After gaining the fundamental skills that are needed to manage a highly available application in a cluster, you will deploy VCS in a lab environment to implement a sample cluster design.

We can proudly say that students trained at our institute have very good command on the subject than those trained elsewhere. Course material covering all the topics is given to help the students learn better. Daily assignments and regular assessments are conducted to help groom their technical skills. Good learning environment, regular assistance and well cataloged training procedures are the key features of Yoinsights Veritas Cluster Server Training in Surat, Gujarat.
