Training is Good and we learnt more on this course. Trainer also good and he clarified all questions asked by us.

This training was a nice experience and I learned a lot about cloud computing.

Well done. The instructor was very good and the course content seemed to cover the basics of GPFS at least for what I need.

The course material and instructor were very good. easy to follow, lab was setup nicely and was able to complete most of the lab material.
The Koretex App is absolute garbage and very cumbersome to use on a tablet/ipad. A PDF file would be 100 times better than that atrocious app.
As a recommendation this class should be 5 days instead of 4 as some chapters had to be rushed.

I really admired his coaching skills and mannerisms and he gave many examples when I asked questions.
