Red Hat OpenStack Administration III: Networking &
Foundations of NFV (CL310) teaches network engineers, network operators, cloud
operators, and cloud administrators how to manage and tune Red Hat® OpenStack Platform for network performance.
This offering is based on Red Hat OpenStack version 10.0 and Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4.
You will learn how
to manage the OpenStack networking service (Neutron) with network functions
virtualization to enhance network performance. You will configure distributed
virtual routers, Open vSwitch with Data Plane Development Kit datapath, and
IPv6 networking in OpenStack. You will also deploy software-defined networking
Impact on the organization
This course is intended to develop the skills needed to design and configure OpenStack for high-performance networking environments. These skills are suitable for organizations seeking to virtualize their network infrastructure and to provide rapid implementation, innovation, and scaling for both core networking and end-to-end consumer services.
Network virtualization eliminates capital expenditures for dedicated, limited-capability hardware requiring labor-intensive maintenance, operating procedures, and physical expansion. Instead, network virtualization provides scalable, automated, resilient core and custom service deployment, resulting in significant operational efficiencies, resource pooling, global service provider interoperability, and accurate demand-matched utilization.
This course includes recommended practices for high-performance throughput and utilization for both infrastructure resources and deployed services in a dynamically scalable and distributable modular configuration.
Red Hat has created this course in a way intended to benefit our customers, but each company and infrastructure is unique, and actual results or benefits may vary.
Impact on the individual
As a result of attending this course, you should be able to design and tune a Red Hat®OpenStack Platform environment meeting the high-network performance requirements of your organization.
You should be able to demonstrate these skills:
Design and implement high-performing software-defined networks.
Provide higher-performing networks using enhanced platform awareness (EPA), Open vSwitch Data Plane Development Kit (OVS-DPDK), and network functions virtualization (NFV).
A Red Hat® Certified
Architect (RHCA) is a Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE®) or Red Hat Certified JBoss® Developer who
attained Red Hat's highest level of certification by passing and keeping
current five additional hands-on exams on Red Hat technologies from the
respective lists below. If you pass more than five, then you achieve a higher
level of RHCA. For example, if you passed six exams beyond RHCE or RHCJD you
would be an RHCA Level II. This status would be reflected on the verification
to retain RHCA status, you must keep at least five credentials beyond either
RHCE or RHCJD current from the respective lists on the SKILLS tab below. These
need not be the same credentials you used when you first earned RHCA.
the RHCA ranks requires significant time and effort. If you are interested in
pursuing RHCA, we recommend theRed Hat Learning Subscription as
your most cost-effective and flexible option. Best of all, once you achieve
RHCA you are eligible for a 50 percent discount on Red Hat Learning
Subscription to help you keep your credentials current or pursue new ones.
