VMware Training Resources

I regularly get asked where good VMware training resources are found for various VMware products, so I thought I’d better create a page I can add links to as find them.

vCloud Director

Since I’ve had a focus on vCloud Director for the past few years, these links are fresh in my mind:

  1. VMware has recently updated their Fundamentals course, so this is probably the best place to start: VMware vCloud Director Fundamentals 2016

vCloud Networking

  1. Networking is often a tricky area for new users of vCloud Director, so here is a the best presentation I’ve found so far that explains how the different networking components fit together: https://youtu.be/EZw1UemLBoE
  2. http://www.yellow-bricks.com/2010/09/07/vcd-networking-part-1-intro/
  3. http://www.yellow-bricks.com/2010/09/09/vcd-networking-part-2-network-pools/
  4. http://www.yellow-bricks.com/2010/09/15/vcd-networking-part-3-use-case/

vCloud Design

  1. vCloud Director Design and Scale: https://youtu.be/dzX6DgUL2hQ

I’ve just found this page which includes most of the above links and more: http://blogs.vmware.com/vcloud/2010/09/top-resources-to-learn-about-vcloud-director.html
