Course Overview

This course, equivalent to five days of training, discusses Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), a network architecture concept that specifies how virtualization technologies can be used to virtualize network service functions.

This course also covers interfacing VMware vCloud Director® with other systems using various APIs and the integration and use of VMware vCloud® Availability for vCloud Director®. You will also understand how to manage multisite, cross-VDC (Virtual Data Center) networking for vCloud Director and how to configure Central Point of Management (CPOM) to define a software-defined datacenter (SDDC) for tenant and provider users of vCloud Director . This course also discusses how to monitor various vCloud Director objects using VMware vRealize® Operations™, Tenant vApp, and VMware vRealize® Log Insight™.
