Course Overview

This intensive, extended hours, five day, instructor-led fast-track course demonstrates to technical personnel how to deploy and Design VMware vCloud® for a public, private, or hybrid cloud environment and manage the ongoing operation of the deployment. The course focuses on the private and public vCloud solutions but also includes information on how this approach supports a hybrid solution. This course is also designed to guide students through the decision points and policy choices available for designing and implementing a VMware vCloud® environment. Students will learn to appreciate the effects of design choices in VMware vSphere®, VMware vCloud® Director™, VMware® vCenter™ Chargeback™, and the VMware® vShield Edge™ capability that is included with vCloud Director. The course culminates in a comprehensive workshop on VMware cloud design.

The vCloud Design element of this course is built on four design labs. In the final, 6-hour lab, students will design a complete Cloud architecture on either the service provider model or the private enterprise model.
