Red Hat OpenStack Administration I: Core Operations for Domain Operators (CL110) Course Overview
The focus of Red Hat OpenStack Administration I: Core Operations for Cloud Operators (CL110) will be managing OpenStack using both the web-based dashboard and the command-line interface, in addition to managing instances and installing a proof-of-concept environment using Red Hat OpenStack Platform (RHOSP) director. Essential skills covered in the course include configuring Red Hat OpenStack Platform (using the director UI); managing users, projects, flavors, roles, images, networking, and block storage; setting quotas; and configuring images at instantiation.
- Describe OpenStack personas, launch an instance, and describe the OpenStack components and architecture.
- Create and configure projects with secure user access and sufficient resources to support cloud user application deployment requirements.
- Describe how IP networks are implemented in OpenStack, including fundamental TCP/IP stack behavior, software-defined networking elements, and the common types of networks available to self-service cloud users.
- Configure the requisite resource types for launching a basic non-public instance, including vCPUs, memory, and a system disk image, and launch an instance of an application component that runs in a tenant network with no public access.
- Identify the available choices for configuring, storing and selecting blockbased virtual machine (VM) system disks, including the choice of ephemeral or persistent disks for specific use cases.
- Identify the available choices for additional cloud storage techniques, including object-based storage, network file sharing, and volumes sourced from a file sharing service.
- Identify and configure the additional resource types required to launch instances with public access for specific use cases, including networking and access security elements.
- Configure and deploy a typical multi-tier cloud application stack, defined as an architected template of scalable VM instances, including perinstance launch customizations.
- Introduce overcloud layouts more complex than a single site, and explain the management resources to control the placement of launched instances, including segregation elements such as cells and availability zones, and placement attributes such as requisi
