BladeLogic Server Automation 8.x: Expert-Level Training

The BMC BladeLogic Server Automation (BSA) product is a comprehensive system for the initial provisioning and ongoing automated management of datacenter servers. Using this system, administrators can provision operating systems onto servers and then specify how the server should be configured. BSA allows administrators to manage servers with a consistent user experience, regardless of whether the servers are physical or virtual.

This course is highly interactive and includes a significant amount of hands-on activities, in addition to a Q&A session with a BMC product expert. Students are required to possess extensive BSA product experience, including successful completion of the BMC Certified Professional: BMC BladeLogic Server Automation 8.x Certification.

This course uses a mix of instructor-led introduction, recorded content, practical exercises and mentoring during the sessions. Additional resources, such as product documentation, will be used as it would during an actual customer implementation.
