VMCADD71 - VMware Cloud Automation: Design and Deploy v7.1


Duration: 5 days

This five-day course focuses on designing and deploying an enterprise cloud by using a distributed architecture deployment of VMware vRealize® Automation™. The lecture and labs concentrate on designing an enterprise cloud architecture and the effective implementation of a vRealize Automation distributed deployment according to VMware recommended best practices.


  • Apply enterprise design principles 
  • Design and deploy a tiered VMware vSphere® resource architecture for CPU, storage, and network resources, including VMware NSX® 
  • Design and deploy a vRealize Automation distributed infrastructure for an enterprise cloud 
  • Design and deploy a CA certificate/single sign-on architecture that includes Active Directory integration to support the enterprise cloud infrastructure 
  • Design and deploy an administration architecture of roles for an enterprise cloud 
  • Design and deploy a tenant-and-business group architecture for an enterprise cloud 
  • Design and deploy compute resources, reservation policies, network profiles, and reservations to support your enterprise cloud 
  • Use XaaS to extend vRealize Automation into other enterprise systems 
  • Integrate vRealize Automation with IP address management systems and asset management systems 
  • Describe VMware vCloud® Air™ integration for elastic clouds 
  • Describe the location and identity of all log files that relate to vRealize Automation troubleshooting 
  • Use VMware vRealize® Log Insight™ to manage and monitor distributed vRealize Automation deployments


Experienced system administrators, cloud administrators, system integrators, and deployment consultants

  • Course objectives.

Module 2: Enterprise Design Principles 

  • Create a design foundation for an enterprise cloud by identifying business requirements, typical business solutions, constraints, assumptions, and risks. 
  • Create a conceptual design for an enterprise cloud. 
  • Create a logical design for an enterprise cloud. 
  • Use key enterprise design principles to create a vSphere infrastructure for the enterprise cloud.

Module 3: Security Infrastructure 

  • Design a certificate authority architecture. 
  • Create certificate signing requests for your vRealize Automation servers. 
  • Create certificates for your vRealize Automation servers. 
  • Use the VMware hardened virtual appliance.

Module 4: vRealize Automation 

  • Distributed Architecture Design and deploy the vRealize Automation solution in a highly available, distributed architecture. 
  • Use vRealize Orchestrator in external and internal clusters. 
  • Use cloudutil.exe and skills to control which DEM servers are used with specific endpoints. 
  • Describe the proper configuration of NSX load balancers for a highly available, distributed architecture.

Module 5: Administration Role Architecture 

  • Design either an expanded administration role architecture or a compressed administration role architecture for an enterprise cloud.

Module 6: Tenants and Business Groups 

  • Design an optimum tenant and business group architecture for your enterprise cloud, using either a single-tenant or a multitenant model.
  • Describe the use of vRealize CloudClient in a multitenancy context.

Module 7: Cloud Resource Design 

  • Design an enterprise cloud that is based on a multitiered architecture.
  • Design naming standards in vRealize Automation to support your tenant-and-business group architecture. 
  • Use composite blueprints in an enterprise deployment. 
  • Use data center location in an enterprise deployment to control where systems are provisioned. 
  • Design a unified self-service catalog. 
  • Design service entitlements in an enterprise deployment. 
  • Design and use governance and approvals.

Module 8: Extensibility and the Enterprise 

  • Describe vCloud Air and elastic clouds. 
  • Describe the role of vRealize Orchestrator in vRealize Automation extensibility. 
  • Use IaaS extensibility and the vRealize Automation event broker system. 
  • Extend vRealize Automation to an asset management system. 
  • Extend vRealize Automation to an IP address management system. 
  • Use NSX on-demand components.

Module 9: Enterprise Management 

  • Use VMware vRealize® Operations Manager™ and the vRealize Automation management pack. 
  • Use vRealize Log Insight in vRealize Automation enterprise management. 
  • Manage costs. 
  • Manage resource use. 
  • Replace expired security certificates.
