New VMware Cloud Provider Hands on Labs (HOL) Available!

I’ve been bantering on vCloud Director 9 and Usage Meter for some time now – wouldn’t it be great to test out these great solutions on-demand and at no charge? VMware HOL is the way to go

Well, here you go. My esteemed colleague, Eric Stine, has been working significantly on updating the VMware Hands-on Labs (HOLs) for our VMware Cloud Provider partners to utilize and demonstrate the functionality.

For the first HOL, we have introduced our standard, multi-tenant vCloud Director stack that shows the key features of vCD. This has been updated to version 9.0 to see the new functionality that we’ve been discussing. This is a great way to experience the new tenant HTML5 interface, play with NSX Distributed Logical Router conversions inside of vCD, and many other items.

Second, we have the VMware Cloud Provider Program – Tools and Offerings HOL that has a lot of other affiliated goodies. You will see the following in here:

  1. vRealize Operations with our Tenant App for vCD – check out Sean Smith’s install review of the Tenant App for vCD
    1. Another value add that provides vROps data inside of a multi-tenant and vCD hierarchy.
  2. Usage Meter
    1. Everyone’s favorite metering tool – this is inclusive of 3.6x which provides feature detection based on itemized VM billing.
  3. vCloud Availability

Launch the Tools and Offerings HOL here. 

Happy HOL’ing!
