IT Associate at NSK Inc. Receives VMWare Certification
NSK Inc now certified in VMware vSphere 4 virtualization
Boston, MA, February 1, 2010 - NSK Inc. recently announced that one of their IT Associates, Justin Etling is now a VMware® Certified Personnel. VMware software allows system administrators to run multiple operating systems on one CPU and lets users create virtualized servers. Etling is certified in VMware's vSphereTM 4, a cloud computing application designed to manage large pools of virtualized computing infrastructure including hardware and software components. According to Etling, "virtualization is the future of the IT industry."
"Virtualization is going to be a huge project driver for small to medium businesses (SMB) in 2010," comments Timothy Lasonde, President of NSK Inc. "As small businesses begin to realize that they can get more out of their equipment by implementing these new technologies, the demand for qualified technicians who understand SMB companies and how to correctly utilize this technology is skyrocketing. Justin is leading NSK Inc in its virtualization efforts and his certification helps to position us appropriately."
In order to become VMware certified, Etling completed a fifty hour training course which culminated in a certification exam. He says the course was very beneficial and that VMware is "really easy to use and implement." Once a technician becomes a VMware Certified Professional, they are officially licensed to use, install, and configure VMware solutions. Etling claims his new credentials are a huge asset to NSK Inc. "A lot of our clients use [VMware] to save money on hardware and software costs. Our clients also use the application for disaster recovery. If a server dies, you can instantly bring it up on another server, which minimizes downtime."
