Course target

In this five-day course, you focus on installing, configuring, and managing VMware Cloud Director™ 10.x. You learn about workload provisioning, the creation of organizations, virtual data centers (VDCs), catalog services that include predefined virtual machines, and on-demand VMware NSX® networks.

This course also covers interfacing VMware Cloud Director with other systems and the integration and use of VMware Cloud Director Availability™. You also learn how to manage multisite, cross-VDC networking, and configuring Central Point of Management (CPOM) to define a Software-defined Data Center (SDDC) for a tenant and provider users of VMware Cloud Director. This course also discusses how to monitor various VMware Cloud Director objects using VMware vRealize® Operations™ and discusses administering tenant facing applications using vRealize® Operations Tenant App™.

Audience

Customers, cloud architects, systems engineers, data center administrators, and cloud administrators with experience in managed services or managing a service provider environment

After course students will be able to
