Not all essentials in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 will be covered in this course.

This course introduces the student to deploying applications in containers using Docker and Kubernetes. Students will learn how to: design containers for the deployment of an existing application across multiple containers, build and test those containers using Docker, and deploy the application in a Kubernetes cluster to achieve high availability and load balancing. This hands-on course will take a monolithic application and break it down into distinct services, illustrating how containers are an excellent vehicle for microservices architecture deployment.

This course provides an overview of the Red Hat® Ceph Storage architecture and its deployment. This includes deploying the Ceph Storage Cluster (based on RADOS), the Ceph Object Gateway (based on RADOSGW), and the Ceph Block Device (based on RADOS Block Device, or RBD). This course also covers integration with Glance and Cinder in Red Hat OpenStack® Platform.

This course is for experienced Linux® system administrators, and provides the hands-on skills and expert knowledge needed to measure and influence performance on Red Hat® Enterprise Linux 7 systems.

Camel development is organized around:

  • Routes that define a sequence or flow of processing through one or more processors and endpoints.
  • Processors that massage, interpret, and modify messages within a Camel flow.
  • Components that enable creating endpoints that interact with the outside world for acquiring and transmitting messages.

Attendees will learn the skills required to develop, implement, test, and deploy enterprise integration pattern based applications using Camel through the exploration of and hands-on implementation of specific real-world use cases.

In this course attendees will learn how to diagnose, and fix, various types of problems that can arise while using Red Hat® Enterprise Linux®. This course has a heavy focus on hands-on exercises that reinforce the topics taught.

Red Hat® Satellite 6 is an effective tool for managing large-scale deployments of Red Hat Enterprise Linux® systems. In this course, participants will learn how to use Red Hat Satellite to manage the software development life cycle of a subscribed host and its configuration.
