This training course focuses on designing and deploying an enterprise cloud by using a distributed architecture deployment of VMware vRealize® Automation™. The lecture and labs concentrate on designing an enterprise cloud architecture and the effective implementation of a vRealize Automation distributed deployment according to best practices recommended by VMware.

Objectives:    By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:
•  Understand and apply enterprise design principles
•  Design conceptual, logical, and physical designs
•  Understand the use of security certificates in asynchronous key exchanges
•  Design and deploy a certificate authority and single sign-on architecture to support the enterprise cloud
•  Design and deploy a tiered VMware vSphere® resource architecture for CPU, storage, and network
   resources, including VMware NSX®
•  Design and deploy an authority architecture of roles for an enterprise cloud
•  Design and deploy a tenant and business group architecture for an enterprise cloud
•  Design and deploy standard machines and multimachine templates to support your tenant and business
   group architecture
•  Design and deploy blueprints, services, and entitlements to support your enterprise cloud
•  Understand VMware vCloud® Air™ integration and when to use cloud bursting
•  Understand VMware vRealize® Business™ cost structure design and integration with vRealize Automation
•  Understand the location and identity of all log files that relate to vRealize Automation troubleshooting
Intended Audience:    Experienced system administrators, cloud administrators, system integrators, and deployment consultants
