High Availability with Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform (CL 332)

Overview

Learn more about the high-availability features and tools of Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform.
 
High Availability for Red Hat© Enterprise Linux© OpenStack© Platform (CL332) is for system administrators and cloud operators interested in high availability for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. This course provides a deeper dive into the high-availability features and tools than our Red Hat OpenStack Administration (CL210) course.
 
This course uses the top open source clustering and high-availability solutions on the market and provides a comprehensive plan to connect them with Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. Students will implement each of the services in a highly available manner and test failover scenarios. Students will use Pacemaker, Corosync, CMAN tools, and HAProxy to implement cluster and other high-availability tools.

Target Audience

Linux system administrators and cloud administrators interested in, or responsible for, maintaining a private cloud.
Cloud operators interested in providing high availability for their cloud.
RHCE certification or requisite level of knowledge is highly recommended.

Prerequisites

Deep knowledge of OpenStack services and their connectivity.
Understanding of high-availability concepts and high-availability implementations.

Course Objectives

  • High-availability basic concepts
  • Comprehensive plan for a highly available cloud
  • Cluster a Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform environment using high-availability designs and implementations
  • Validation of the highly available cloud
  • MariaDB Galera cluster for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform database
  • GlusterFS for Glance and Cinder
