Outline

Red Hat Virtualization overview

Explain the purpose and architecture of Red Hat Virtualization.

Install and configure Red Hat Virtualization

Install a minimal Red Hat Virtualization environment and use it to create a virtual machine.

Create and manage datacenters and clusters

Organize hypervisors into groups using datacenters and clusters.

Manage user accounts and roles

Configure user accounts using a central directory service, then use roles to assign access to resources based on job responsibilities.

Adding physical hosts

Add additional Red Hat Virtualization hosts automatically, and move and remove hosts from datacenters as needed.

Scale Red Hat Virtualization infrastructure

Add Red Hat Virtualization hosts automatically, configure Red Hat Enterprise Linux hosts when appropriate, and move and remove hosts from data centers as needed.

Manage Red Hat Virtualization networks

Separate network traffic into multiple networks on one or more interfaces to improve the performance and security of Red Hat Virtualization.

Manage Red Hat Virtualization storage

Create and manage data and ISO storage domains.

Deploy and manage virtual machines

Operate virtual machines in the Red Hat Virtualization environment.

Migrate virtual machines

Migrate and control automatic migration of virtual machines.

Manage virtual machine images

Manage virtual machine snapshots and disk images.

Automating virtual machine deployment

Automate deployment of virtual machines by using templates and cloud-init.

Back up and upgrade Red Hat Virtualization

Back up, restore, and upgrade the software in a Red Hat Virtualization environment.

Explore high-availability practices

Explain procedures to improve the resilience and reliability of Red Hat Virtualization by removing single points of failure and implementing high-availability features.

Perform comprehensive review

Demonstrate skills learned in this course by installing and configuring Red Hat Virtualization; using the platform to create and manage virtual machines; and backing up and updating components of Red Hat Virtualization.

Note: Course outline is subject to change with technology advances and as the nature of the underlying job evolves. For questions or confirmation on a specific objective or topic, please contact a training specialist online.

Audience

Linux system administrators, virtualization administrators, and hybrid infrastructure engineers interested in deploying large-scale virtualization solutions and managing virtual servers in their datacenters, based on the Red Hat Virtualization open virtualization management platform.

Prerequisites

  • Become a Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA®), or demonstrate equivalent experience
  • Being a Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE®) is strongly recommended for Ansible® automation comprehension

What You Will Learn

Impact on the organization

This course is intended to develop the skills needed to improve efficiency within a virtualization environment. Expected results include reducing IT infrastructure costs by virtualizing more workloads on less hardware while avoiding vendor lock-in.

This class will train virtualization administrators to work more efficiently by using Red Hat Virtualization to deploy, manage, and monitor virtualization environments, resulting in faster response times for users requesting and using virtualized resources. Virtualization engineers will also learn about new forward-looking choices in virtualization design for distributed offices using hyperconverged infrastructure and migration procedures for sites currently running VMware clusters.

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 create and deploy Red Hat Virtualization and virtual servers. Using a single, full-service management interface, Red Hat Virtualization Manager, you will be able to configure, manage, and migrate systems within the virtualization environment.
