This course is designed to guide students through the decision points and policy choices available for designing and implementing a VMware vCloud™ environment. Students will learn to appreciate the effects of design choices in VMware vSphere™, VMware vCloud Director, VMware vCenter™ Chargeback, and the VMware® vShield Edge capability that is included with vCloud Director. The course culminates in a comprehensive workshop on VMware cloud design.
