This Private Cloud Computing & Application Service Management course focuses on how using Microsoft System Center can help you configure, deploy, operate and manage private cloud infrastructure components. You'll learn about the features that System Center offers for building and supporting the virtualized and physical resources that are part of your private cloud infrastructure. You'll understand Microsoft’s vision for cloud computing, from the business perspective to the technical level. Lastly, you will learn how to use the System Center tools to deploy, update, and manage applications within your private cloud. The course will illustrate how using System Center as part of your private cloud infrastructure will benefit both your organization and you as the IT professional.
This module explains the concept of application services and covers the types of services available to you, as well as the basic steps needed to configure and deploy that service. You’ll learn how to use new tools in System Center 2012 to manage the underlying resources of an application using the service template model, and how to delegate control and access to those templates. We’ll also how to work with developers to optimize applications for service-level monitoring across both private and public clouds.
In this module you will learn new ways to operate and manage applications and workloads using the service template paradigm. New tools in System Center 2012 will allow for improved performance and monitoring of your applications. You’ll learn how to keep your applications running healthy and how to quickly re-allocate resources to ensure they continue to be healthy in the case of unforeseen problems or new requirements. You’ll see how these new tools can radically decrease the time required to resolve problems by giving IT administrators the ability to drill down to the performance characteristics of individual virtual and physical service resources, as well as at the code level. See how System Center 2012 will provide this new level of insight into the applications your organization depends upon to do business, and how you can use that insight not just to keep those applications running smoothly, but to make them perform at a new level.
