I work at VMware as a Lead Solution Engineer. This year, I volunteered to join the VMware Hands-on Labs program to develop the Discover the Value of Getting Started with vRealize Automation lab. Getting Started with vRealize Automation was a topic I was very familiar with, having worked with several customers guiding them through successful implementation to deploying and managing thousands of workloads. Owning the development of the Getting Started with vRealize Automation lab gave me an opportunity to make it easier for anyone to learn and experience the value of the solution via exercises in a live environment.
VMware Hands-on Labs provides everyone with free access to VMware products and services to explore and learn. No installation required. You only need your Chrome or Firefox browser, a reliable internet connection, and, hopefully, not too many distractions.
You can access the lab NOW, free of charge by visiting Discover the Value of Getting Started with vRealize Automation or use the Hands-on Labs Catalog to try out other labs you may be interested in.
Use VMware vRealize Automation to govern, build, manage and share the release of your application infrastructure rapidly and reliably. Create and manage Cloud Templates in Cloud Assembly and then add more automation and integration including public cloud capabilities. Publish Cloud Templates and other capabilities, developed in Cloud Assembly, to your customers using Service Broker. Through Code Stream, you will expose a new set of tools to enable integration of infrastructure, with an application development pipeline.
