Advanced OpenStack Cloud on Cisco UCS Management with Manual Deployment (AOSCUCS)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline

Course Overview

OpenStack is an open and scalable operating system for building public and private clouds. It provides both large and small organizations an alternative to closed cloud environments, reducing the risks of lock-in associated with proprietary platforms. OpenStack offers flexibility and choice through a highly engaged community of over 6.000 individuals and over 190 companies including Cisco, Rackspace, Dell, IBM, and Red Hat.

As powerful as the OpenStack software is, we know firsthand it takes a lot more than software to properly design, deploy, and operate a cloud at scale. This advanced training provides a deep understanding of how to manually install, configure and monitor the OpenStack environment. Students will walk away from the training with the understanding of the inner workings of individual OpenStack components, how to customize them to their environment and how to effectively monitor running OpenStack deployment.

The course is intended as a follow-up to our OpenStack Fundamentals on Cisco UCS (OSFU) course.
