OpenStack Administration

Introduction to OpenStack

The OpenStack Administration training course provides an in-depth overview of the Open Source Cloud Operating System, OpenStack.

The OpenStack Administration course begins with an overview of “What is OpenStack”, where it’s being leveraged and how you can leverage it within your environment. With the foundational concepts laid, the course then dives into a detailed discussion about the OpenStack architecture and key components. Along the way, you’ll learn how to setup, manage, and administer cloud platforms created with OpenStack.

This course is very hands-on focused, with the majority of time spent doing labs to create a private OpenStack cloud.
