VMware vCloud: Overview


  • In this course, technical personnel will learn how the VMware® vCloud™ solution delivers IT services in a cloud environment. Focusing on enterprise usage in a private cloud, you will also learn how this approach supports moving to a hybrid or public cloud. Performing hands-on labs, you’ll learn how IT resources are delivered and consumed in a vCloud environment. Instructors will demonstrate the basics of how the vCloud solution abstracts, allocates, and meters IT resources in a vCloud environment.
