This course teaches cloud computing basics and shows how to use VMware vCloud Director to create a hybrid cloud that can deploy IT resources on-demand. Learn VMware vCD and evolve your datacenter into a model that saves time & money while providing flexibility to users and your business.
Cloud Computing is the hottest topic in technology today but most people (including many in IT) have no idea really what it is and how it works. What are the different types of cloud computing, what makes up a cloud, and why do you (and your users) want to implement one? You’ll find out the answers to these questions in this course (and that’s just in the first couple of lessons).
Once you are “cloud savvy”, we’ll jump into the #1 infrastructure cloud platform in use today – VMware vCloud Director. You’ll find out what makes up vCloud Director and how it builds on top of vSphere. In the end, you’ll learn “cloud-speak” by understanding terms like providers, organizations, virtual data centers, vApps, and numerous types of virtual networks.
Once you have a solid understanding of vCloud Director you’ll install it using the new virtual appliance, as well as from scratch, on top of Linux with an external SQL database. We’ll connect vCD to vCenter & vShield; create our provider virtual data center, organizations, and Org vDCs.
Finally, run multi-tiered apps in your cloud by creating vApps and storing them in your cloud catalog.
