Veeam Certified Architect v11 (VMCE11-A)

 

Course Overview

Veeam Certified Architect is the highest level of Veeam technical certifications. Engineers who complete both Veeam Availability Suite v11: Configuration and Management and Veeam Backup & Replication V11: Architecture and Design programs (courses + exams) will be granted with the "Veeam Certified Architect" (VMCA) title by Veeam.

This Veeam Certified Architect course consists of the two courses which lead to VMCA status.

The Veeam® Availability Suite™ v11: Configuration and Management training course is a three-day, technical deep dive focused on teaching IT professionals the skills to configure, manage and support a Veeam Availability Suite v11 solution. With extensive hands-on-labs, the class enables administrators and engineers to effectively manage data in an ever-changing technical and business environment, bringing tangible benefit to businesses in the digital world.

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.

Who should attend

This course is suitable for anyone responsible for configuring, managing or supporting a Veeam Availability Suite v11 environment. This includes Senior Engineers and Architects responsible for creating architectures for Veeam environments.

Prerequisites
