Architecting on AWS with VMware Cloud Fast Track

This 5-day class combines Architecting on AWS with VMware Cloud on AWS: Deploy and Manage to give you a broad overview of AWS capabilities and how it relates to VMware Cloud.

The Architecting on AWS portion of this course will focus on teaching all the essential skills to architect your IT solutions on AWS. Gain in-depth knowledge of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform and how to leverage AWS services for your specific cloud-based application. As an emerging technology course, this hands-on training provides current AWS cloud best practices and AWS architecture principles covering the entire process of designing IT infrastructure from beginning to end. Since AWS introduces an average of 200 new features and services annually, it is critical that you study the most recent innovations. To reinforce this material, you will also explore pertinent case studies with a variety of AWS infrastructure designs and strategies. Upon completion, you will be fully equipped to build and scale a more efficient and reliable IT solution on the AWS cloud environment.

The VMware Cloud portion of this class will focus on teaching skills for deploying and managing a VMware Cloud on AWS infrastructure. Through a mix of 85% lecture and 15% hands-on labs, you deploy and manage the VMware Cloud on AWS and VMware vSphere® features that build a foundation for a hybrid infrastructure. You also discuss when and where these features have the greatest effect. Anyone planning to migrate, build, or hybridize with VMware Cloud on AWS can benefit from this course.
