VMware Education ServicesIt’s been a while since a new PowerCLI related course has been released by VMware Education, but they heard the requests and have released a new 5-day course! The course is titled “Data Center Automation with vRealize Orchestrator and vSphere PowerCLI” and will take experienced vSphere administrators down the path of automating their day to day tasks.

Attendees will gain a wealth of knowledge about PowerCLI and vRealize Orchestrator (vRO) based automation tips and tactics, regardless of their experience level. The course will set the ground work by covering some high level automation principles and then dives right in on the vSphere API. Upon learning the importance of the vSphere API as well as how it’s utilized, it’s PowerCLI time! Attendees will learn the basics, such as using the cmdlets, setting variables, and invoking PowerCLI object methods, then get into some more advanced concepts like accessing the underlying API and using the Onyx fling.

The rest of the course will cover vRO by making sure the attendees understand the basics, how to use and create workflows, how to tie in Windows PowerShell, and finally combining vRO and PowerCLI together to perform some guest operation activities.

The course is jam packed with lots of automation and PowerCLI goodness, and is certainly a must attend.
