Now available: OpenStack+vSphere and vCAC 6.0 Labs

Got Automation? Fresh from their debut performances in VMworld Europe, we have released two more new labs in the Software-Defined Datacenter catalog, both specifically focused on cloud automation solutions. There was a great deal of interest in both of these labs at the conference, so we are happy to release them to the world.



HOL-SDC-1320 – OpenStack on VMware vSphere

OpenStack is a cloud management platform that enables self-service cloud provisioning and automation. What does that mean for you? This lab provides a basic overview of OpenStack and how it can be used with vSphere to provide cloud users access to compute and storage resources.

Hands on Labs World Tour 2013


Just wanted to share with you our upcoming list of events around the world in case you are in the area and want to take a lab. Look forward to seeing you guys on the road.

All the New Lab Manuals are in HTML and PDF!

Good morning! We are busy preparing for VMworld Barcelona, but have some exciting news that we would like to share with you. The full 2013 HOL Content Catalog of lab manuals is now available online in both HTML and PDF formats.


We wanted to get these resources out to you all as soon as possible, so the lab listings page is a bit sparse. We are trying out a new HTML format this year that consolidates all Modules, Lessons and Steps into a single document. As a result, manuals may take a bit longer to load. Please be patient. 🙂

Please provide feedback regarding your experience with these new manuals in the comments below. We will be continuously updating these pages to improve your experience. Thanks!
