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 uses Runtime Manager, which is part of Anypoint Platform and is the recommended management solution for Mule 3.7 and above. If you want to get training for the older Mule Management Console, contact
