Traditional storage options available to Kubernetes administrators are limited and lack versatility. Red Hat OpenShift Data Foundation provides real advantages, even when backed by cloud storage such as AWS EBS or legacy datacenter storage arrays. Many companies rely on third-party solutions to manage backup and disaster recovery in production. However, proper planning to implement these solutions requires knowledge of the Kubernetes CSI and OAPD APIs. This course walks the student through the recommended steps of configuring and managing storage services for container and Kubernetes services.
Basic knowledge of Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform is recommended but not required.
Basic knowledge of storage technologies, such as disk types, SAN, and NAS is recommended.
Internet access is required to access the classroom environment and Red Hat OpenShift clusters in the Red Hat Training Cloud.
