Prerequisite Knowledge

Experience working with command line and virtual machines

  • Modern Private Cloud Infrastructure

    Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) converges the entire datacenter stack. This course dives into the role of a hybrid cloud engineer and how to use HCI using Nutanix’s Prism web console to configure the different components of a private cloud cluster. We discuss the importance of security and how to manage virtual machines, including data protection, risk calculation and creating backups. By the end of this course, students will be able to deploy and manage private cloud workloads using best practices and industry standards.

  • On-Premises Private Cloud Automation

    In this course, we will cover various tools and features that Nutanix provides to eliminate the process of manually operating infrastructure while extending up the stack to incorporate applications and maintenance operations. You will discover how Nutanix Prism Central eliminates IT intervention in performing repetitive, laborious tasks with Nutanix Calm automation to deliver simple, repeatable, and automated management of application creation, self-service consumption, and governance.

  • Public and Hybrid Cloud Management

    This course will teach you how to augment the automation you've previously created in the program to use the public cloud in a hybrid manner. By the end of this course, you will be able to extend your blueprint into the public cloud and will have a clearer understanding of how to architect and manage hybrid cloud workloads.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why should I enroll?
    Cloud technology is rapidly advancing and changing the way we do business. Nearly 90% of companies rely on cloud computing, and spending on cloud services is estimated to have hit $97 billion last year. As companies continue investing in cloud migration, Hybrid Cloud has emerged as the secure, flexible solution that many large and midsize companies are choosing. As a result, the demand for engineers who can build and maintain hybrid solutions is growing rapidly! That’s why Udacity teamed up with Nutanix, the industry leader in hybrid cloud infrastructure software, to build the Hybrid Cloud Engineer Nanodegree Program.

    In this program, you will work at the forefront of cloud technology, designing and deploying the cloud infrastructure solutions preferred by large and midsize companies across industries. You’ll focus on building the skills needed to navigate the Nutanix Hyper-converged infrastructure platform, design a hybrid application deployment, translate infrastructure requirements into a CALM blueprint, and more. By the end of the program, you'll have a portfolio of three projects that demonstrates your skill designing and deploying hybrid cloud applications.
