Anypoint Platform Operations: Customer-Hosted Runtimes
This instructor-led course is for all operations and administration personnel, developers, and architects who want to get hands-on experience managing and monitoring customer-hosted Mule runtimes and applications (on-prem or in a private cloud) with Anypoint Runtime Manager (whether Runtime Manager is MuleSoft-hosted in the cloud or customer-hosted using Anypoint Platform Private Cloud Edition).
Note: This course is for both Mule 3 and Mule 4.
A downloadable datasheet for the course can be found here.
