Using Yum Repositories to Streamline Package Deployment in Linux Environments

While today's enterprise Linux environments rely on products from Red Hat, SUSE, Canonical and others, they also frequently rely on systems and software that were developed in-house. Managing the large scale installation, configuration and deployment of these systems is detailed in our Linux Enterprise Automation (LF430) course. A key topic covered in this Linux training course is how to create custom software repositories that allow your system administrators to easily pull software from a variety of sources, both public and private. In this Linux training tutorial, we'll teach you how to set up a yum repository and populate it with your own packages, which help make installation a breeze.
