Audience

  • Cluster engineers (systems administrators, cloud administrators, or cloud engineers) focused on planning, designing, and implementing production-grade OpenShift clusters. Cluster engineers require automation skills to scale their manpower to provision and manage an increasing population of clusters, applications, and users, at the same time ensuring these clusters remain in compliance with corporate standards.
  • Site reliability engineers (SREs) focused on keeping OpenShift clusters and applications running without disruption. SREs are interested in troubleshooting infrastructure and application issues with OpenShift clusters and require automation skills to reduce the time to identify, diagnose, and remediate issues.

Prerequisites

  • Complete Red Hat OpenShift Administration I (DO280) and become a Red Hat Certified Specialist in OpenShift Administration.
  • Complete Red Hat System Administration II (RH134) and become a Red Hat Certified System Administrator.
  • Recommended, but not required: become a Red Hat Certified Systems Engineer or a Red Hat Certified Specialist in Ansible Automation. Basic knowledge about writing and running Ansible playbooks is required.

Technology requirements

  • This course requires internet access to access the cloud-based classroom environment that provides an OpenShift cluster and a remote administrator's workstation.
  • This course also requires that the classroom environment can access the Red Hat registry, Red Hat Quay, and GitHub.
  • You are also required to have personal, free accounts at GitHub.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. Its a cost effective option. One on one training can be delivered too, at reasonable rates.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
