Register for Bootcamp

The OpenStack Administration Bootcamp course is a class designed to introduce you to OpenStack and its components, then provide you with a complete experience with administering and operating the most common OpenStack components to implement Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) in a private cloud; from image management to instance creation to network plugins and more.

At the end of OS250, you have the skills required to pass the COA exam. All Mirantis OpenStack courses are vendor agnostic. Tasks are performed in an OpenStack environment without any vendor add-ons that might change the way OpenStack works. Reference implementations are utilized, such as Logical Volume Manager (LVM) for Block Storage, Open vSwitch (OVS) for L2 networking, or KVM/QEMU for the hypervisor.
