Course outline

Reference : @ VMWARE VREALIZE8.0

Duration : 5 days

During this five day course, the student focuses on installing, configuring, and managing VMware vRealize Automation. He or she learns about how vRealize Automation can be used to automate the delivery of virtual machines, applications, and personalized IT services across different data centers and hybrid cloud environments.
The course covers how to manage both on-premise systems and cloud services. The course covers how vRealize Automation Service Broker can aggregate content in native formats from multiple clouds and platforms into a common catalog. This course also covers interfacing vRealize Automation with other systems using VMware vRealize Orchestrator and how to use vRealize Automation to manage Kubernetes systems and leverage systems like Ansible.

Audience

Experienced system administrators and system integrators responsible for designing and implementing vRealize Automation.

Prerequisites

Experience working at the command line is helpful.
This course requires that a student be able to perform the following tasks with no assistance or guidance before enrolling in this course:
  • Create VMware vCenter Server objects, such as data centers and folders
