Learn how to configure, manage, and scale key services used in the data center
Red Hat Services Management and Automation (RH358) is designed for IT professionals with some experience managing Linux® systems and want to learn more about how to manage and deploy network services included with Red Hat® Enterprise Linux which are particularly important in the modern IT data center. You will learn how to install, configure, and manage basic configurations of these services manually, and then use Red Hat Ansible® Engine to automate your work in a scalable, repeatable manner.
This course is based on Red Hat Ansible Engine 2.9 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.1.
Who should attend
Linux system administrators, site reliability engineers, and other IT professionals with some Ansible experience who are interested in learning how to manage and automate the deployment, configuration, and operation of key network services included with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.
Be a Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, or demonstrate equivalent skills in Linux system administration and Ansible automation.
Impact on the organization
This course will help your staff develop key skills in managing and automating common services that support and are used by your business-critical applications. These skills can assist your team in reducing time to deployment, improving reliability, and ensuring architectural compliance, allowing resources to be spent on improving rather than just running your business.
Red Hat has created this course in a way intended to benefit our customers, but each company and infrastructure is unique, and actual results or benefits may vary.
