Courses Information

OpenStack is a free and open-source software platform for cloud computing, mostly deployed as infrastructure-as-a-service, whereby virtual servers and other resources are made available to customers.

Hundreds of the world’s largest brands rely on OpenStack to run their businesses every day, reducing costs and helping them move faster. OpenStack has a strong ecosystem, and users seeking commercial support can choose from different OpenStack-powered products and services in the Marketplace.

OpenStack is a cloud operating system that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter, all managed and provisioned through APIs with common authentication mechanisms.

By end of this Course you will proficiently execute routine OpenStack Administration tasks, like creating Project Networks & Routers, Launching Virtual Server Instances, managing Block and Object Storage in OpenStack Cloud.

In this Course you get not only a detailed and deep understanding of OpenStack, but most important you get a Training Lab to develop practical skills. This Lab is delivered as a Virtual Appliance to install on a laptop or a desktop.
