With the fast pace of OpenStack development, growth of its community, and the enormous business opportunity it provides, Rackspace Training for OpenStack provides an accelerated method of getting up-to-speed on OpenStack technology both in a Public and Private Cloud environment.
Students will also have access to the Rackspace team of OpenStack experts, as well as the curriculum they developed. As founders and top contributors to OpenStack, Rackspace is the authority on the open source project. The Rackspace team includes the architects and operators of the Rackspace Cloud (the world's second largest public cloud).
In support of OpenStack’s rapid growth, the Rackspace Training organization developed an “OpenStack Fundamentals” course designed to accelerate an individual’s understanding of the OpenStack environment. During this four-day course, students will learn about the history of OpenStack, the components of OpenStack and how to build and maintain an OpenStack environment. The activities used to teach students during this course include an informational lecture, the manual installation and hands-on administration of core OpenStack components and multiple activity labs.
This course is a two-day intro class covering the core OpenStack compute projects including Neutron, Nova, Glance, Keystone and Horizon. This is the same material covered in the first two days of our OpenStack Fundamentals class with topics that range from understanding the architecture, to installing and configuring. This course is a great primer for anyone interested in OpenStack Compute. This course is designed for technical individuals and consists of lectures, discussions, demos and hands on labs.
This course is a two-day intro class covering the OpenStack Object Storage project, codenamed Swift. This is the same material covered in the last two days of our OpenStack Fundamentals class wtih topics that include understanding the Swift components, architecture, installation and maintenance. This course is a great primer for anyone interested in OpenStack Object Storage. This course is designed for technical individuals with minimum Swift experience. The course consists of lectures, discussions, demos and hands on labs.
Neutron is an OpenStack project that was launched with the Folsom release. This new service provides a virtual “Networking as a Service” between interface devices and allows users to use an API to build and configure networking infrastructure. By becoming proficient with Neutron, users can create load balancers and firewalls using network virtualization throughout their environment.
