VMware Training. Season 2021-2022. Part 2. Authorized Training: Multi-Cloud. vSphere.

Introduction


Hello to all readers of the blog about IT Architecture and Learning!

In the previous article of the series “Learning VMware. Season 2021-2022.” we considered a list of areas and specifics of authorized learning VMware.

Today we will talk about the main training programs in the field of Multi-Cloud.

Direction of training – Multi-Cloud includes training programs on VMware vSphere 7, vSAN, Site Recovery Manager, VMware Cloud Foundation, VMware Intergrated OpenStack, vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager, Automation, Orchestrator, Operations, Log Insight, VMware Cloud Director technologies.

The number of training programs on these products is quite large, so today we will talk only about the direction of the VMware Sphere 7.

VMware vSphere 7


VMware vSphere is server virtualization software and the heart of a Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) that helps you run, manage, connect and secure applications in a shared cloud operating environment.
