This intermediate course is for anyone responsible for implementing and managing a self-service Cloud infrastructure running on System x Cloud foundation components and cloud management software.
The audience for this training includes the following:
Cloud end users
System x technical support individuals
System x system administrators
System x system engineers
System x system architects
You will learn how to perform key Cloud administrative tasks on IBM System x servers. This course also provides working knowledge on how to utilize the Tivoli Service Automation Manager (TivSAM) as the cloud management package for Power Systems cloud infrastructure. TivSAM will interface into the System x infrastructure through IBM Systems Director 6.3 and VMControl 2.4. This course uses a combination of instructor lectures and machine exercises to provide you with practical background knowledge regarding the topics covered. This is delivered in a traditional classroom (face-to-face). If you would prefer the Instructor Led On-line (ILO) delivery, you should search for course code Cloud Administration on System x (ILO) (1SW40GB).
