Training on Cloud/SDN/NFV


Whitestack believes in providing organizations with the required knowledge to allow them to face their challenges by using new technologies (different from the approach traditional vendors adopt).

Our Unique Training Program

Because of this, Whitestack provides a complete training program, with tracks in:

  • Cloud Computing (Public, Private & Hybrid)
  • SDN (Software Defined Networks)
  • NetDevops (Network Development & Operations)
  • NFV (Network Function Virtualization)

Training Curricula

Each track has training at different levels:

  • Introduction: for professionals who need to understand the key benefits, and how to apply them in their organizations. Usually they contain 20-30% of technical demos and/or hands-on experiences.

  • Fundamentals: for technical professionals who need to understand the technology fundamentals behind each approach. Usually they include 30-50% hands-on experiences, through individual laboratories.

  • Operations: for technical professionals who need to operate infrastructure running on these new technologies. Usually they spend more than 50% on hands-on experiences, through individual laboratories.

Considering lots of happy Telcos (in several countries) that have trusted our training program (in English, Spanish or Portuguese), Whitestack is the leading Knowledge Provider for these new technologies.

Hands-on Laboratories

Whitestack provides technical (very technical!) training. Our objective is to provide each attendee with the technical background to understand how to apply these new technologies in their own environments, with confidence!

Training Curricula

For this reason, we include extensive hands-on experiences during our training. Each attendee is assigned a isolated laboratory, where she/he can exercise and learn at his/her own pace through trial-and-error. We are the only training provider able to provide a whole private cloud to each attendee of our Cloud training.

What sets us apart

Whitestack has successfully positioned itself as the most recognized company in formal training programs in Cloud, SDN and NFV technologies. This is because of the following unique and concrete differentiators in our training offer:

Consulting

After training, you might want to implement in your own company/environment and would like to get advice from a team of experts to address your specific use cases. In those cases, Whitestack can help with Advanced Services and Consulting (contact us), to make your project progress rapidly in a completely risk-free way.
