Today, we will take a deep dive into our popular professional-level course: Enterprise Cloud Administration (ECA). 


What’s covered in ECA? 

If you already have experience with administering a Nutanix environment, this course will broaden your knowledge as you grow in your career as a Nutanix administrator.

Designed with Prism Central as the focal point, this course illustrates the breadth and depth of Nutanix’s centralized management capabilities, and allows you to explore the wide variety of features that are available in this one, single web console.

ECA is divided into four topic areas:

  1. Understanding core Nutanix concepts, such as hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) and the various Nutanix cloud solution packages. Also, the basic configuration of a cluster and the components that are needed to create and manage VMs – namely, networks and images.
  2. Creating and managing VMs, how to protect VMs and their data, how to apply storage optimization features at the VM level, and how to migrate your workloads to a Nutanix environment.
  3. Managing alerts, events, log collection, reporting, and how to use various features in Prism Central to identify, analyze, and remediate performance issues.
  4. Setting up a cluster for maintenance activities – such as starting and stopping nodes and clusters – and how to manage and upgrade licenses and installed software with just a few clicks.



Here’s what a few recent ECA students had to say about the course: 

“Overall, one of the better classes I’ve taken in my IT career! A++!” 


“This is the best training I have ever been to. Everything the instructor told us was valuable. Thanks for sharing knowledge… Amazing!!!!” 


“I’m walking away fully understanding so much more and feel more confident on my Nutanix setup.” 


Who should take it? This course is great for administrators, engineers, and others who manage Nutanix clusters in the datacenter. 

ECA is also perfect for anyone who’s interested in securing the Nutanix Certified Professional - Multicloud Infrastructure (NCP-MCI) certification as it covers key objectives that are tested on the exam.
