PREIS: €3.000,00


This four-day course is a follow-on to the VMware Aria Automation: Install, Configure, Manage course. During this course,
you will take a deeper dive into advanced topics using features of VMware Aria Automation such as deploying user
systems and interfacing Aria Automation with other platforms. You will also learn how to deploy a cluster environment
using VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle and interface with, and use, vSphere with Tanzu Kubernetes. This course makes heavy
use of hands-on labs.


By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:
• Describe and configure VMware Aria Automation in a clustered enterprise deployment using with VMware Aria Suite
• Scale out VMware Identity Manager to support High Availability
• Use external Certificate Authorities to configure security certificates in VMware Aria Automation
• Create YAML templates to configure VMware Aria Automation using cloudConfig
• Use VMware Aria Automation advanced templates to deploy a 2-tier Database-Server using MySQL and phpMyAdmin
• Use Advanced VMware NSX networking features including NAT, routed networks, load balancers, security groups, and
• Integrate and use NSX Advanced Load Balancer with VMware Aria Automation and VMware NSX
• Create and use Aria Automation Pipelines to deploy software and connect to Kuberenetes
• Create and use Ansible playbooks that integrate with VMware Aria Automation
• Integrate Aria Automation with Terraform
• Integrate Aria Automation with GitLab
• Create Orchestrator Workflows and ABX Actions that interface with other systems and use REST calls
• Configure and use Orchestrator Workflows and ABX actions to create day-2 actions and interface with Powershell
• Use Aria Automation to deploy minions and deploy software


• Experienced system administrators and system integrators responsible for using VMware Aria Automation in
advanced configurations in enterprise deployments.
