Red Hat Announces New OpenStack Certification

Today is an exciting day for Red Hat as we announce our new Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Infrastructure-as-a-Service and expanded training in support of Red Hat's OpenStack technology.



We launched Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform at the Red Hat Summit in June as a core part of our open hybrid cloud strategy. There is a huge amount of excitement about OpenStack both at Red Hat and from our customers. In terms of company focus, it truly is “the next Linux.” Our goal is to bring our enterprise experience to the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) market and provide an OpenStack platform that our customers can trust.



We are committed to providing services that help our customers use OpenStack to get their products to market faster. We recently launched a range of IaaS-focused offerings. From cloud migration strategy consulting, to Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform product-pilot implementation services, through complete IaaS-based solution development, we can support our customers through every stage in their cloud journey. Red Hat OpenStack Administration (CL210), a course we introduced earlier this year, helps customers build their teams' readiness to adopt and use this new technology.



Today, we complement and expand these offerings by introducing the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Infrastructure-as-a-Service and expanding the Red Hat OpenStack Administration course to cover new capabilities in the latest release and to provide preparation for the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Infrastructure-as-a-Service Exam (EX210).



We built the industry’s leading Linux certification program by focusing on rigorous, hands-on testing of real-world skills. Our Red Hat Certified Professionals love this because it is a meaningful test of their skills. IT employers love it because it offers assurance that the certificate holders can apply their skills and knowledge  in real-world situations.



We have applied these same principles to the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Infrastructure-as-a-Service. Organizations are seeking capable professionals to help bring OpenStack into their IT environments. As with Linux, we expect to set the benchmark for a technology that is rapidly proving to be a game changer in the industry.
