The global leader in multi-cloud management, RightScale is rapidly being adopted by many Australian enterprises. As always, any tool is only as effective as the skills of those tasked with using it.

Offis has developed the RightScale training course to help CIOs, sys admins and their teams get to grips with RightScale quickly and with a detailed understanding of best practice.

The RightScale Cloud Management Platform (CMP) is an enterprise grade application with significant functionality and capability. CMP Training is thus a fundamental requirement for staff involved in the design, delivery and ongoing operational support of cloud based applications, infrastructure and services.

Who Should Attend:

The RightScale Cloud Management Fundamentals course has been specifically designed to assist cloud administrators who already manage one virtualised environment and now need to manage multiple environments across public and/or private clouds.

The course assumes your organisation has already implemented – or is in the process of implementing – RightScale.

It is NOT an entry-level course and does not cover introductory or broader topics related to cloud computing. It also doesn’t cover the fundamentals of hybrid or multi-cloud infrastructure. Attendees will be assumed to already have a working knowledge and experience of these concepts.

Each attendee will need to bring a laptop for which they have administrator access enabling them to configure personal key-based access to the RightScale platform.
