Veeam Backup & Replication v11: Architecture & Design

SS Course: GK6201

Course Overview


The two-day, Veeam Backup & Replication v11: Architecture and Design training course, is focused on teaching IT professionals how to effectively architect a Veeam solution through attaining technical excellence following the Veeam Architecture Methodology used by Veeam s own Solution Architects.

During the two days, attendees will explore the goals of requirement gathering and infrastructure assessment, and use that information to design Veeam solutions within team exercises. Attendees will analyze considerations when turning logical designs into physical designs and describe the obligations to the implementation team that will implement that design. Other topics covered will include security, governance and validation impacts when architecting a Veeam solution and how to build these into
the overall design.

Attendees should expect to contribute to team exercises, present designs and defend decision making.

This class is designed for professionals who have attended the Veeam Availability Suite v11: Configuration & Management course and want to acquire a Veeam Certified Architect (VCMA) certification. Completion of this course satisfies the prerequisite for taking the Veeam Certified Architect (VMCA) exam (VEEAM-EV- Exam Voucher SKU).
