This five-day intensive course, will train you on installing, configuring, and managing VMware vRealize® Automation™. You will get trained 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, creating approval cycles, and managing machine lifecycles to conserve resources. In addition, you will better knowledge on how to achieve the benefits of automation as a component of the software-defined data center.

By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:

  • Define the vRealize Automation architecture and use cases
  • Successfully Install and configure vRealize Automation 
  • Effectively manage vRealize Automation entities on VMware and third-party virtual, cloud, and physical infrastructures
  • Efficiently Configure and manage catalogs and blueprints
  • Successfully configure and manage business groups and reservations for compute resources on VMware, Microsoft, Amazon, and other platforms
  • Effectively use the self-service portal to request and manage machines in accordance with vRealize Automation approval and governance policies
  • Define vRealize Automation extensibility and workflows
  • Effectively manage and monitor machines and resource reclamation

  • Experienced system administrators and system integrators responsible for designing and implementing vRealize Automation
