Overview

Learn how to configure, manage, and scale key services used in the data center

Red Hat Services Management and Automation (RH358) is designed for IT professionals with some experience managing Linux systems and want to learn more about how to manage and deploy network services included with Red Hat Enterprise Linux which are particularly important in the modern IT data center. You will learn how to install, configure, and manage basic configurations of these services manually, and then use Red Hat Ansible Engine to automate your work in a scalable, repeatable manner.

This course is based on Red Hat Ansible Engine 2.9 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.1.

Audience

Linux system administrators, site reliability engineers, and other IT professionals with some Ansible experience who are interested in learning how to manage and automate the deployment, configuration, and operation of key network services included with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.

Skills Gained

  • Configure advanced networking for server use cases, including device teaming.
  • Use Red Hat Ansible Engine to automate the manual deployment and configuration tasks covered in this course.

Prerequisites

  • Be a Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, or demonstrate equivalent skills in Linux system administration and Ansible automation.

Outline

Manage network services

Discuss and review key tools and skills needed to manage network services.

Configure link aggregation

Improve the redundancy or throughput of network connections of servers by configuring Linux network teaming between multiple network interfaces.

Manage DNS and DNS servers

Explain the operation of DNS service, troubleshoot DNS issues, and configure servers to act as a DNS caching nameserver or as an authoritative name server.

Configure web servers

Provide web content from Apache HTTPD or Nginx web servers, then configure them with virtual hosts and TLS-based encryption.

Optimize web server traffic

Improve performance of your web servers by using Varnish to cache static content being served and HAProxy to terminate TLS connections and balance load between servers.

Provide file-based network storage

Deliver simple file-based network shares to clients using the NFS and SMB protocols.

Access block-based network storage

Configure iSCSI initiators on your servers to access block-based storage devices provided by network storage arrays or Ceph storage clusters.

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.
