VMware vCloud Director Essentials Training Released by TrainSignal

TrainSignal, the global leader in professional computer training, announced the release of their VMware vCloud Director Essentials Training course.

The vCloud Director Essentials Training course teaches administrators of vSphere environments how to use VMware vCD to leverage enterprise virtualization to provide IT resources on-demand. Using vCloud Director, admins can deploy custom-built services "as a service" in order to provide a consistent user experience between private & public clouds. Managing and monitoring resources under this IaaS model opens up the opportunity for cost-efficiency and business agility to expand on top of existing investments.

This essentials training teaches the concepts behind cloud infrastructures and vCD basics for creating a vCloud Director lab. This environment can be used for testing and/or training, utilizing vApps and the vCloud API, and as proof of concept for implementing vCD with a vSphere Enterprise Plus environment. The lesson outline includes:

  • vCloud Director Resources & Working with vSphere
  • Creating Self-Service Catalogs and vApps
  • vCD Installation, Setup, Architecture and Components
  • IaaS, SaaS, PaaS
  • Private, Public and Hybrid Cloud & Evolution of the Data Center

vCloud Director Essentials also features a guest instructor, vExpert Jake Robinson of Datacenter provider Bluelock. This lesson provides insight as to how vCloud Director is used in a real-world, client setting and demonstrates how distributing IT resources through VMware cloud computing services fosters customization.

The lab environment used in the course includes 2 Dell T610 servers and an Iomega IX-200D NAS, though a virtual vSphere lab running inside VMware Workstation is sufficient for viewers interacting with the course.

David Davis authored this course primarily for administrators making the transition from using Lab Manager, and moving to a cloud-based, IaaS model for consolidating IT internally. David is behind TrainSignal's award-winning vSphere Training line, and is a top speaker at virtualization conferences worldwide. He has over 18 years of experience and is certified VCP5, VCAP-DCA and CCIE #9369.

The vCloud Director course contains 14 lessons in over 5 hours of video instruction. Students will receive 1 DVD of video lessons and 1 DVD of additional content. Each lesson is available in several formats, iPod Video, Mp3 Audio, .WMV and high quality AVI, allowing students to use course materials on a variety of devices.
