Course Overview
The Multi-Cloud Livefire: Architecture & Design course is aimed at enabling VMware’s field teams and partners to understand the challenges of designing Multi-Cloud environment. Using a detailed case study, attendees will utilize VCF as the primary tool to design a Private Cloud solution which makes extensive use of the vRealize Suite, followed by extending into VMware Cloud on AWS to form a Hybrid Cloud Solution. Attendees will further design/extend the customers environment to encompass an integrated Multi-Cloud solution to allow seamless deployment of modern applications, leveraging VMware Cloud Services. Lastly, they will design a management and monitoring solution to meet the needs of the customer. Individuals will exit this course with the confidence and competence necessary to successfully design a complex Multi-Cloud in a customer production environment.
