As part of my journey to become a VMware Certified Professional and hopefully Instructor in the future, I’m trying to work as much as possible with VMware environments. Currently, I’m helping my team with testing a new lab for VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF) 4.3. The course is an intensive 5-day training that prepares students to install, configure, and manage a VMware Cloud Foundation based environment.
The VMware Cloud Foundation is one of the industry’s most advanced and sophisticated hybrid cloud platforms. It provides a complete set of software-defined services for compute, storage, networking, security, and cloud management to run enterprise apps in private or public environments. It offers a unique set of features such as automated lifecycle management, standardized architecture and much more. Key benefits of the vCloud Foundation contain highly reduced total cost of ownership when deployed with the vRealize Suite and a future proof infrastructure.
If you decide to take part in a VMware vCloud Foundation: Planning, Management, Operations course you will learn a wide variety of objectives. Key objectives are:
- Describe design implications of VMware Cloud Foundation standard or consolidated architecture
- Perform VMware Cloud Foundation bring-up
- Use VMware Cloud Foundation™ SDDC Manager™ to perform operational tasks
- Use Active Directory integration to automate certificate generation and rotation
- Manage workload domains in VMware Cloud Foundation
- Manage VMware NSX-T™ for VMware Cloud Foundation
- Deploy a vSphere with Tanzu enabled workload domain
- Describe the importance of business continuity measures in VMware Cloud Foundation
- Plan appropriate backup and restore workflows for VMware Cloud Foundation components
