Who should take the OpenStack Training?

System administrators and solution architects who will be deploying OpenStack clouds are ideal for these training courses. We are developing curriculum with IT professionals or developers in mind who have at least six months of Linux system administrator experience and are proficient at command line interface use and bash scripting.

What kind of hands-on experience will the courses provide?

Because cloud infrastructure is scalable and distributed, you need to work in an environment with access to clusters of servers to truly understand how to effectively manage and grow a cloud. Our courses are conducted using our unique multi-system training lab. Students are better able to understand distributed systems through exercises and activities that provide real-world experience. Learn to scale cloud storage across multiple servers and how to expand the computer system as usage increases.
