Ever wanted a self-service VM provisioning tool that was actually useful... because you created it? You can have one with vCenter Orchestrator and the skills you'll learn in this course.

vCenter Orchestrator 5.5 is a powerful tool for automating IT tasks. Using Orchestrator's graphical workspace, you’ll connect pre-built activity objects to quickly construct complex automation tasks. Almost no scripting is required. Once built, those tasks can be executed and/or scheduled from within the vSphere client, a customized Orchestrator web site, or other triggering mechanisms.

The hardest part about using Orchestrator is knowing where to start. This tool can be overwhelming. In this short "Foundations" course, veteran CBT Nuggets instructor Greg Shields offers a quick introduction to a handful of Orchestrator's most-useful features for vSphere administrators. You’ll participate in a real-world exercise that’ll leave you with a Orchestrator-driven, production-ready, self-service provisioning tool that you can immediately implement in your vSphere environment.
