Overview

Introduction to Red Hat OpenStack Platform configuration and administration of private cloud infrastructure using core OpenStack services

Red Hat OpenStack Administration II: Infrastructure Configuration for Cloud Administrators (CL210) teaches you how to implement a full-featured cloud computing environment using OpenStack. You will learn how to configure, administer, and manage Red Hat OpenStack Platform infrastructure. The lessons and objectives taught in this course will prepare you for the Red Hat Certified System Administrator in Red Hat OpenStack exam (EX210).

This course is based on Red Hat OpenStack Platform 13.0 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.5.

The focus of this course is on managing and using the OpenStack client command-line interface and the director and dashboard graphical web user interfaces to securely manage server instances, compute and storage resources, and user identities.

 

Audience

This course is intended for Linux system administrators, cloud administrators, cloud operators, and infrastructure architects interested in, or responsible for, maintaining a private or hybrid cloud

Skills Gained

As a result of attending this course, you will know how to configure and manage an OpenStack installation featuring all of the common, core features and services used by enterprise private/hybrid cloud customers. You will also be able to choose and customize compute, storage, networking, deployment, and application support resources and services tailored to your enterprise needs.

Students should be able to demonstrate the following skills:

  • Navigate and manage the control plane on the undercloud and the overcloud.
  • Work with containerized overcloud infrastructure services.
  • Manage necessary authentication, authorization, and security administration.
  • Navigate and describe all network layers in an IaaS and all aspects of SDN design and management.
  • Manage compute node and storage resource, including hyperconvergence.
  • Troubleshoot typical OpenStack operations.

Prerequisites

  • Be a Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA), or demonstrate equivalent experience by passing the online skills assessment
  • Attend Red Hat OpenStack Administration I: Core Operations for Cloud Operators (CL110), or demonstrate equivalent experience

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.
