Enterprise IT & Linux System Administration Training

Among the chief reasons the adoption of Linux in the server market continues to grow are the total cost of ownership, technical superiority and security. A portion of the growth can also be attributed to Linux’s dominance in emerging cloud infrastructures. The Linux Foundation recognized that this growth created demand for in-person and online IT training for Linux system administration professionals. Our comprehensive Linux best practices courses are the best way for system administrators to get the advanced Linux system administration training and Linux security training they need to keep their IT infrastructure secure and operating at optimal levels.

Software Defined Networking with OpenDaylight

This two day course is a condensed and intensive version of our soon to be offered full four-day class. SDN (Software Defined Networking) abstracts networking infrastructure away from the actual physical equipment. This allows network system administrators to maintain the networking environment across mulitple vendors and hardware, and operating systems and versions. OpenDaylight is an open networking platform that enables SDN and constructs a solid foundation for NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) for all network sizes.
