VMware vCloud: Architecting the VMware Cloud

COURSE OVERVIEW

This course is designed to guide students through the decision points and policy choices available for designing and implementing a VMware vCloud™ environment. Students will learn to appreciate the effects of design choices in VMware vSphere™, VMware vCloud Director, VMware vCenter™ Chargeback, and the VMware® vShield Edge capability that is included with vCloud Director. The course culminates in a comprehensive workshop on VMware cloud design. This course is 45% lecture, and 55% design lab.

PREREQUISITES
  • Students must have VCP-level knowledge of vSphere
  • They must also have general-purpose vSphere design experience, with special emphasis on networking and storage
  • Exposure to the product features and functionality of vCloud Director, vSphere, vShield Edge, and vCenter Chargeback is required
AUDIENCE

Sales partners, customers, consultants, and sales engineers who are responsible for designing public and private cloud architectures with VMware products

COURSE OBJECTIVES

At the end of the course, you should have an understanding of the VMware cloud and be able to:

  • Evaluate and design a multitenant environment to address both private cloud and public cloud customer needs
  • Configure vCloud providers that can accommodate heterogeneous server, storage, and network resources
  • Design a network infrastructure optimized for vCloud
  • Integrate vCloud Director security with existing LDAP systems and design appropriate security hierarchies with security roles
  • Design a vCenter Chargeback implementation
DESIGN LABS

The course is built on four design labs. In the final, 6-hour lab, students will design a complete vCloud architecture on either the service provider model or the private enterprise model.

  • vCloud architecture network design lab
  • vCloud architecture provider design lab
  • vCloud architecture security design lab
  • vCloud architecture design lab
