OpenStack is growing at an unprecedented rate, and there is incredible demand for individuals who have experience managing this cloud platform. You’ll become adept at managing and using private and public clouds with OpenStack, and you’ll develop hands-on experience with essential commands, automation, and troubleshooting, under the expert guidance of our instructors who impart state-of-the-market OpenStack experience. And all course materials are vendor neutral, so you’ll be able to apply these skills regardless of how your OpenStack installation has been constructed.

Course Description

OpenStack Cloud Architecture and Deployment will teach attendees how to deploy, administrate and use the core Openstack services. Each objective is focused on practical requirements to manage and use an OpenStack cloud. Emphasis will be placed on both architectural concepts and practical demonstrations, with students performing hands-on labs for each objective.

Full life cycle OpenStack services will be covered, including deployment, administration, usage and distributed storage. Core OpenStack services covered include Compute (Nova), Networking (Neutron), Distributed Storage (Swift, Ceph), Orchestration (Heat), Telemetry (Ceilometer), Image (Glance) and Identity (Keystone).

Students will be introduced to OpenStack's Horizon GUI and then extensive coverage will be provided for command line tools and automation with Heat templates. Service administration will be covered across all core services.
