VMware vRealize Automation Install Configure Manage 7.0

5 days


During this five-day course, you will focus on installing, configuring, and managing VMware vRealize Automation . You will learn about the configuration and use of the vRealize Automation platform, including self-service provisioning and the creation of catalog services that include predefined virtual machines, software components, and on-demand VMware NSX networks. This course also covers interfacing vRealize Automation with other systems, using VMware vRealize Orchestrator to leverage workflows, and creating approval cycles and managing machine lifecycles to conserve resources. In addition, you will better understand and know how to achieve the benefits of automation as a component of the software-defined data center.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
