Target Audience

Top

Linux system administrators, virtualization administrators, and hybrid infrastructure engineers interested in deploying large-scale virtualization solutions and managing virtual servers in their datacenters, based on the Red Hat Virtualization open virtualization management platform.

Course Objectives

Top

This course is intended to develop the skills needed to improve efficiency within a virtualization environment. 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, resulting in faster response times for users requesting and using virtualized resources. Virtualization engineers will also learn about new forward-looking choices in virtualization design for distributed offices using hyperconverged infrastructure and migration procedures for sites currently running VMware clusters.

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

  • Configure Red Hat Virtualization
  • Configure networking and storage for use with Red Hat Virtualization
  • Manage user accounts and access to the Red Hat Virtualization environment
  • Install and manage virtual machines in Red Hat Virtualization
  • Use templates for rapid virtual machine deployment
  • Manage virtual machine snapshots and images
  • Migrate virtual machines and explore high-availability options
