OpenStack Bootcamp I (OS100)

Course Description

This three day course is for IT operations, Network Admins, Security or Storage architects responsible for design, and/or indirect support and operation of an OpenStack installation. The course provides participants with a detailed understanding of steps necessary to operate an OpenStack environment. The lecture covers 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 to two sections: lectures and labs.

The lectures provide OpenStack Overview and 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 on 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 the core components of OpenStack. The labs wrap up with a comprehensive review to solidify the hands-on skills that are required to operate an OpenStack environment, and to better prepare students for the MCA200 exam.
