Aimed at systems administrators and IT professionals looking to get started on an OpenStack Cloud deployment, this three day course provides an intensive mix of lectures, demos with individual labs and group exercises.

  • Day 1 provides an OpenStack overview & architecture. It covers: the project goals and use cases; basic operating and deployment principles; cloud usage patterns, with an OpenStack codebase overview; creating networks/tenants/roles; cloud networking; and OpenStack tuning and troubleshooting.
  • Day 2 Starts with a review of cloud storage, and moving on to OpenStack in Production. It covers: deploying OpenStack for real-world use, and practice of OpenStack operation on multiple nodes; Swift Object Storage use cases, architecture, capabilities, configuration, security and deployment; advanced topics in deployment and production operations workshop; comparison of VMware with OpenStack; and a look ahead to the OpenStack roadmap.
  • Day 3 picks up where the the bootcamp left off. You will get a chance to deploy OpenStack manually on a lab environment with baseline OS. Our experts will guide you through installation and configuration of OpenStack. Following the manual deployment, our instructors will give a Fuel demo where you will learn about Fuel and automated deployment.
