Recipients will spend 2 months designing, deploying, and managing hybrd cloud infrastructure using the Nutanix platform. The initial Fundamentals course is intended for students who have comfortability with command line on Linux or Windows, and some experience working with VMs and/or AWS/GCP cloud.
