PRICE: €3 080,00


This four-day, hands-on training course provides you with the knowledge, skills, and tools for deploying and managing a VMware Cloud™ on AWS infrastructure. You will explore the common use cases of the VMware Cloud on AWS infrastructure that allows you to modernize, protect, and scale applications based on VMware vSphere® that leverages Amazon Web Services (AWS).

In this course, you are introduced to various rapid and easy migration options for moving workloads based on vSphere from on-prem to VMware Cloud on AWS. In addition, you are presented with VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery™, which is a Disaster Recovery as-a-service (DRaaS) solution. This solution provides fast recovery capabilities that can be used to cost-effectively protect a broad set of your virtualized applications.


By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:
• Describe the architecture of VMware Cloud on AWS
• Prepare and deploy the VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC
• Configure the scale-up and scale-down of a VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC
• Access a VMware vCenter® configuration in VMware Cloud on AWS
• Configure internal, external, and inter-SDDC networking
• Configure storage integrations and solutions for VMware Cloud on AWS
• Configure a connection between an on-premises vSphere SDDC and a VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC
• Migrate VMs between on-premises vSphere and VMware Cloud on AWS SDDCs
• Describe life cycle management, troubleshooting scenarios, and disaster recovery solutions for a VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC
• Describe how VMware add-on solutions support a VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC
