Students will learn KVM from the ground up with a focus on QEMU and libvirt, and will understand how KVM and related open source components can be assembled to create a virtual IT infrastructure. There is a focus on practical KVM deployment skills, securing the virtual infrastructure, and administering KVM solutions. There are low-level lab exercises focused on virtual images and snapshots, deployment, VM creation and maintenance, integration with networking infrastructure, device pass-through and more.

Course Description

Linux KVM Virtualization takes a deep dive into KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine), the most popular virtualization technology in the open source ecosystem. Built by experts in the field of virtualization, this course provides the technical background to understand the components that constitute KVM as well as the others required to build and administer a modern virtual IT infrastructure.

This course is focused on problems typically faced in the enterprise world. The lectures are filled with examples of how KVM can be used in business environments as well as practical lab sessions that let participants gain a real­-world perspective of common virtualization problems and how to address them.

At the end of the training, attendees will have acquired the skills needed to:

  • Understand the role KVM plays in the virtualization ecosystem
  • Know how to assemble KVM and other components into a robust and efficient virtual IT infrastructure
