A lot of the projects that I work on have an element of automation to them and I've been asked a few times by customers if there is a training course available that will help them get started in understanding vRO and VMware's PowerCLI cmdlets and how they can be used. Whilst there have been courses available in the past, there is a new one that reads a bit like “Doing my job 101”. It goes by the catchy title of “Data Center Automation with vRealize Orchestrator and vSphere PowerCLI“.
Looking at the outline, the important stuff is there.
- Understanding, using and navigating the vSphere API (useful for both PowerCLI and vRO).
- PowerCLI basics and more advanced uses.
- vRO Basics and workflow creation / design.
So, if you're looking to get started with vRO or PowerCLI and use one or both of them to add some automation to your datacenter, it might be worth trying this course out.
