This series includes both background information and hands-on tips to implement a full SDDC in practice.

If you are using CloudForms, you might notice that there is a tab called Red Hat Insights.
What is Red Hat Insights? It’s a Software as a Service (SaaS) offering that helps you proactively identify and resolve technical risks in your IT infrastructure before they negatively impact your whole environment. Insights enables you to identify potential outages and fix things faster using verified solutions that are analyzed against Red Hat’s knowledge base. It has been included as a Technology Preview in CloudForms since version 4.0.
