This five-day course focuses on designing and deploying an enterprise cloud by using a distributed architecture deployment of VMware vRealize® Automation™. This course discusses the benefits and risks of available design alternatives and provides information that helps in making sound design decisions. You follow a proven approach to design and deploy an enterprise cloud that is available, scalable, manageable, secure, and that is built according to VMware best practices. During this class, you apply your new knowledge by working with other participants to design and deploy a vRealize Automation solution for a real-world project.
This class requires understanding the concepts and topics presented in the following courses: • VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.x] • VMware vRealize Automation: Install, Configure, Manage [V7.x]
VMware consultants and partners who need to deploy vRealize Automation on an enterprise scale
