New vCloud Director Essentials Video Training by @DavidMDavis of @TrainSignal

by David Davis on March 22, 2012


I am proud to say that my new vCloud Director Essentials video training course from TrainSignal has just been released.

I start the course off with a quick intro to Cloud Computing and vCloud Director in my 101 series, covering things like… What are the different types of cloud computing, what makes up a cloud, and why do you (and your users) want to implement one? You’ll find out the answers to these questions in this course (and that’s just in the first couple of lessons).

Once you are “cloud savvy”, we’ll jump into the #1 infrastructure cloud platform in use today – VMware vCloud Director. You’ll find out what makes up vCloud Director and how it builds on top of vSphere. In the end, you’ll learn “cloud-speak” by understanding terms like providers, organizations, virtual data centers, vApps, and numerous types of virtual networks.

Once you have a solid understanding of vCloud Director, you’ll install it using the new virtual appliance, as well as from scratch, on top of Linux with an external SQL database. We’ll connect vCD to vCenter & vShield, create our provider virtual data center, organizations, and Org vDCs. Finally, run multi-tiered apps in your cloud by creating vApps and storing them in your cloud catalog.

In 5 hours, you’ll learn:

  • Cloud Computing and vCloud Director 101
  • How to Build Your vCloud Director Lab
  • Managing vCloud Director Resources and How vCD Works with vSphere
  • How to Create Catalogs and vApps Inside
  • Plus – learn about vCloud Director in the real-world from vExpert Jake Robinson of vCloud Datacenter provider, Bluelock

At the end of this course, you will have all the knowledge you need to build a vCloud Director test / training lab or a proof of concept for your company. Watch the new vCloud Director Essentials video training course to become the new vCloud Expert at your company!
