Overview

Manage and deploy systems in hybrid cloud environments

Red Hat CloudForms Hybrid Cloud Management (CL220) is for cloud administrators and operators who need to use Red Hat CloudForms to manage cloud instances running on multiple cloud providers or virtualization infrastructures.

This course is based on Red Hat CloudForms 4.

In this course, students use a hybrid environment, configuring Red Hat CloudForms to work with Red Hat Virtualization and Red Hat OpenStack Platform, deploy virtual machines (VMs) with templates and customization, produce chargeback reports on VM and resource use and automations, and perform policy-based management. This course covers CloudForms tenants, interface customization, timeline and event analysis, and service provisioning.

Red Hat CloudForms Hybrid Cloud Management (CL220) can also help you in your preparation for the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Hybrid Cloud Management exam (EX220) and earn the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Hybrid Cloud Management.

Course Outline

To help you prepare, review the exam objectives, which highlight the task areas you can expect to see on the exam.

Being able to manage Red Hat CloudForms Management Engine (CFME) requires some level of skill with one or more of the underlying cloud and virtualization technologies supported by CFME. In order to provide a defined and manageable scope for the exam, the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Hybrid Cloud Management exam is based on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Management, one of the several that CFME supports.

Therefore, you should also be able to perform these ancillary tasks with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Management:

  • Import virtual machine template images into a pre-configured Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Management environment
  • Import ISO image files and template VM images into Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Management
  • Create virtual machine images from templates and customize various attributes of the virtual machine

You will not be directly evaluated on your ability to perform those ancillary tasks, but the inability to do so will prevent you from being able to perform the actual exam tasks, which include:

  • Perform initial CloudForms management engine configuration via virtual machine console
  • Add Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization as a cloud service provider
  • Configure basic CFME settings
  • Create new CFME roles
  • Add CFME users and groups
  • Create and apply smart tags
  • Configure CFME to be able to provision virtual systems via all supported mechanisms
  • Use CFME to provision virtual systems
  • Configure control policies
  • Configure chargeback reporting
  • Configure reporting
  • Perform drift analyses
  • Configure alerts
  • Configure life cycle management provisioning request default values
  • Save the output from reporting and analyses in an external format that can be parsed by other tools

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.
