The course provides participants with a detailed understanding of all of the steps necessary to operate an OpenStack environment. The lecture covers OpenStack architecture, best practices, provisioning workflow, component interaction, and is the best preparation for the real-world challenges faced by OpenStack experts. The course is broken up in three sections: lectures, labs, and hands-on certification.
The lectures provide students with an overview of OpenStack and its Architecture, Openstack Networking, Cloud Storage using Swift, Metering with Ceilometer, Orchestration using Heat templates, and a look-ahead to the OpenStack roadmap.
The labs provide hands-on experience in an all-in-one OpenStack Environment. Students will be given opportunities to use and administer OpenStack using horizon and command line. Over the course of 12+ lab modules, students will get to practice and engage with all core components of OpenStack. The labs conclude with a comprehensive review to solidify the hands-on skills that are required to operate an OpenStack environment.
The certification exam tests candidates' ability to create, configure, and manage private clouds using OpenStack. The exam will run on the 4th day and is completely hands-on with an allotted time of three hours. The course will prepare students for the certification exam.
