RH318

Overview

Red Hat® Virtualization (RH319) teaches experienced system administrators how to use the virtualization features of Red Hat Enterprise Linux® managed through the Red Hat Virtualization suite.

Students acquire the skills and knowledge to effectively create, deploy, manage, and migrate Linux virtual machines hosted on either dedicated Red Hat Virtualization Hypervisor nodes or Red Hat Enterprise Linux servers using Red Hat Virtualization Manager. With hands-on labs and a deep dive into the technology, this training course is the perfect first step for enterprise planning or executing a virtualization deployment strategy.

This course also helps candidates prepare for the Red Hat Virtualization Administrator exam (EX318), which, if passed, earns them the Red Hat Certified Virtualization Administrator (RHCVA) certification.

Impact on the organization

This course is intended to develop the skills needed to improve efficency within a virtualization environmnet. Expected results include reducing IT infrastructure costs by virtualizing more workloads on less hardware while avoiding vendor lock-in. This class will train virtualization administrators to work more efficiently by using Red Hat Virtualization to deploy, manage, and monitor virtualization environments. Doing so will result in faster response times for users requesting and using virtualized resources.

Red Hat has created this course in a way intended to benefit our customers, but each company and infrastructure is unique, and actual results or benefits may vary.

Impact on the individual

As a result of attending this course, students should be able to create and deploy virtual servers and workstations. Using a single full-service management interface, Red Hat Virtualization Manager, students will be able to configure, manage, and migrate systems within the virtualization environment.

Students should be able to demonstrate the following skills:

  • Deploy Red Hat Virtualization
  • Configure, install, and deploy virtual machines
  • Migrate virtual machines between hypervisor hosts
  • Perform troubleshooting tasks
  • Secure and monitor the virtualizaton environment
  • Generate custom operational, environment, and resource reports

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. It's a cost effective option.

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.
