Teaches the essential skills required to design, implement, and manage a Red Hat OpenShift Data Foundation cluster and perform day-to-day Kubernetes storage management tasks.

Traditional storage options available to Kubernetes administrators are limited and lack flexibility and/or versatility. Red Hat OpenShift Data Foundation provides real advantages, even when it is backed by cloud storage such as AWS EBS and sophisticated on-prem legacy storage like SAN arrays. Many companies rely on third-party solutions to manage backup and disaster recovery in production. However, proper planning to implement these solutions requires knowledge of the Kubernetes CSI and OAPD APIs. This course walks the student through the recommended steps of configuring and managing storage services for container and Kubernetes services.



The intended audience for this course includes:

  • Cluster administrators (systems administrators, cloud administrators, cloud engineers)
  • Cluster engineers (systems administrators, cloud administrators, cloud engineers)
  • Site reliability engineers (SREs)

Skills Gained

  • Deploy Red Hat OpenShift Data Foundation in internal and external mode.
  • Provision non-shareable block storage to applications like databases.
  • Provision shareable block storage to applications like virtual machines.
  • Provision shareable file storage to such applications as CI/CD pipelines and AI/ML.
  • Provision shareable object storage to applications, such as AI/ML and media streaming.
  • Provision storage for Red Hat OpenShift cluster services, such as monitoring and registry.
  • Monitor and expand storage capacity and performance
  • Attach and detach storage from an application for backup and archiving.
  • Create and access volume snapshots and clones.
  • Troubleshoot internal Ceph components of Red Hat OpenShift Data Foundation.
  • Perform backup and restore operations using the OADP API.
