This course is for senior system administrators and storage administrators who are interested in deploying scalable, highly available storage on off-the-shelf hardware and in the cloud. Students will learn how to install, configure, and maintain a cluster of Red Hat Storage servers. The course will also explore highly available common Internet file systems (CIFS) and network file systems (NFS) using CTDB, unified file and object storage and geo-replication. Red Hat Storage Server Administration is part of our new emerging technology series of courses. These courses focus on Red Hat’s newer, evolving technologies. Emerging technologies courses are feature- and functionality-focused and are conducted like guided labs, with little lecture.
Prerequisite: Knowledge of linux and Networking
The Red Hat Storage Server Administration certification (RH 236) will be the easiest solution for an entry level Linux administrator who wants to enter the Red Hat storage domain. Being newer software based NAS solution, it is better to attain storage administration training provided by Red Hat that will differentiate participants from other types of storage solutions. Instead of going for a hardware based storage solution it would be better to have a software based storage solution for cost effective and better efficiency.
RH236 training course provides adequate information to an administrator regarding effective management of storage devices and file systems on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform and also managing single node storage solutions. The new file systems which are mostly used in the cluster environments, such as gfs, xfs and glusterfs have been included in this curriculum. The file system implementations are based on the native glusterfs as well as the global file system 2 and XFS.
