vCloud Director training – Backup Academy

Yesterday a vCloud Director training video I produced for Veeam’s Backup Academy was released.  It covers VMware vCloud Director and how it fits together.  This training presentation is based upon my vCloud Director 101 series of articles (found here). Veeam have a number of useful training presentations and videos on the Backup Academy site, and I highly recommend visiting to find further education material.  If you haven’t heard of Backup Academy before, this is how Rick Vanover explains it: Backup Academy’s goal is to help you become a virtual machine backup expert, so you can better meet the challenges of this changing environment. Backup Academy’s educational content is brought to you by renowned virtualization industry experts. I hope you enjoy this presentation and find it useful. Lastly I would like to thank Rick Vanover from Veeam for giving me the opportunity to produce this presentation.  Thanks Rick.
