IBM PowerVC for Private Cloud, an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offering, provides a self-service cloud portal for IBM Power Systems and is built on OpenStack. OpenStack is a collection of open source software projects that enterprises or service providers can use to setup and run their cloud compute and storage infrastructure. IBM PowerVC for Private Cloud provides an easy way to provision and manage virtual machines on IBM PowerVM based systems in a private or hybrid cloud setting. It comes in two versions, a standard edition and a cloud edition.This course aims to provide an overall understanding of how to install and configure IBM PowerVC Standard Edition and IBM PowerVC for Private Cloud, in an environment with HMC and IBM PowerVM NovaLink. The hands-on lab covers exercises from the basics of installing IBM PowerVC to performing advanced administrative tasks. The course also clarifies concepts in planning, deploying, and implementing IBM PowerVC for Private Cloud and IBM PowerVM NovaLink based on technology standpoints, product architectures, and their benefits.
After completing this course, you should be able to:
Summarize the key functions and benefits of IBM PowerVC.
Perform installation and configuration of IBM PowerVC, including upgrading to newer versions.
Recognize the hardware and software requirements of IBM PowerVC.
Demonstrate an understanding of cloud computing from a technology standpoint.
Summarize the architecture of IBM PowerVC for Private Cloud.
Summarize the key components of OpenStack and their functions.
Demonstrate an ability to access and interact with the graphical and command line interfaces of IBM PowerVC for Private Cloud.

Very good couse and again we would like to see more videos on removing FRUs
Overall ExitCertified is a great training provider and the remote learning is as effective as in person.
The technical data in the AWS Solutions Architect course was very thorough.
They were very good. They made sure everyone was able to get into the training and got all of the material needed for class.
Topics, material and specially instructor (Graham Godfrey) was beyond my expectations.
