Who should take this course?

This course is for Anypoint Platform administrators including operations personnel, developers, and architects who want to get hands-on experience installing, configuring, and using the Runtime Fabric appliance on VMs or bare metal.


Note: As of October 31 2022, the Runtime Fabric appliance is no longer available to new customers. To learn to use Runtime Fabric on your own Kubernetes provider, you should instead take the Anypoint Platform Operations: Runtime Fabric on Self-Managed Kubernetes course. If you want to get experience with our integration platform as a service, take the Anypoint Platform Operations: CloudHub 2.0 course, and if you want to stay completely in your own-hosted environment, take the Anypoint Platform Operations: Customer-Hosted Runtimes course.

Prior system knowledge and experience:


  • A knowledge of system administration and server commands
  • A basic understanding of data formats such as XML, CSV, and JSON
  • A basic knowledge of working on Linux systems
  • A basic understanding of remote connection mechanisms such as SSL and SSH
  • (Optional, but useful) A basic understanding of containerization concepts and technologies

When you complete this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the features, benefits, and architecture of Runtime Fabric.
  • Install and configure the Runtime Fabric appliance on VMs.
  • Deploy Mule applications to Runtime Fabric.
  • Scale Runtime Fabric deployments for performance and high availability.
  • Use Anypoint Runtime Manager and to manage, monitor, and analyze Mule applications.
