Overview:
This five-day, hands-on training course provides you with the advanced knowledge, skills, and tools to design and utilize a cloud solution based on VMware Cloud Director™. Besides learning about an advanced cloud architecture, you learn about the integration of VMware Cloud Director with the products VMware Cloud Director Availability™, VMware vRealize® Orchestrator™, VMware vRealize® Operations™ (including the Tenant App), VMware NSX-T® Data Center and VMware NSX® Advanced Load Balancer™ (Avi Networks).

This course covers the migration from VMware NSX® for vSphere® (NSX-V) to VMware NSX-T® Data Center in a VMware Cloud Director environment. You learn about how the NSX Advanced Load Balancer can be used and integrated in a service provider environment. Besides the advanced know-how of the vRealize Operations Tenant App and Cloud Availability, the course also discusses the extensibility and orchestration of workflows in Cloud Director. For all the topics covered in the class, intensive hands-on labs will be taken by the students to provide proper insights into all the products.
