Official Linux Foundation™ Course
Learn KVM from the ground up with a focus on QEMU and libvirt, as well as Xen.
By the end of this Open Source Virtualization training course, you will understand how these and other related open source components can be assembled to create a virtual IT infrastructure. There is a focus on practical deployment skills, securing the virtual infrastructure, and administering solutions. There will also be detailed material about using containers.
There are low-level lab exercises focused on virtual images and snapshots, deployment, VM creation and maintenance, integration with networking infrastructure, device pass-through and more.
Open Source Virtualization takes a deep dive into KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) and Xen, the most popular hypervisor virtualization technologies in the open source ecosystem, as well as the deployment and use of containers. Built by experts in the field of virtualization, this course provides the technical background to understand the components required to build and administer a modern virtual IT infrastructure.
This course is focused on problems typically faced in the enterprise world. The lectures are filled with examples of how KVM, Xen and containers can be used in business environments as well as practical lab sessions that let participants gain a real-world perspective of common virtualization problems and how to address them.
At the end of the training, attendees will have acquired the skills needed to:
- Understand the role KVM and Xen play in the virtualization ecosystem
- Know how to assemble KVM and other components into a robust and efficient virtual IT infrastructure
This course is designed to work with a wide range of Linux distributions, so you will be able to apply these concepts regardless of your distro.
Those who attend the entire course will receive a digital Certificate of Course Completion from the Linux Foundation™.
