Build advanced skills for performing Red Hat OpenStack Platform day 2 operations and management of hybrid cloud infrastructure
Red Hat OpenStack Administration II: Day 2 Operations for Cloud Operators (CL210) is designed for cloud operators, service administrators, and automation engineers who operate and manage a full-featured hybrid and private cloud-computing environment using Red Hat OpenStack Platform. You will learn how to manage, monitor, troubleshoot, and scale a Red Hat OpenStack Platform infrastructure. This course focuses on using the OpenStack Client command-line user interface to configure metrics, policies, and architecture in order to support enterprise cloud applications and daily operations.
This course is based on Red Hat OpenStack version 16.1 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 8.2
This course is based on Red Hat OpenShift® Container Platform 4.6 and Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh 2.0.

Impact on the organization
This course is intended to develop the skills needed for the daily operation of a private cloud. A private cloud can reduce costs through fine-grained resource control, simplifying regulatory compliance, and permitting easier integration with legacy systems. Using the skills taught in this course, cloud operators will be able to manage and operate hybrid cloud Red Hat OpenStack Platform infrastructure.
Customer organizations will find this version to be easier to install and manage while handling more diverse types of cloud and legacy workloads with an expanding portfolio of flexible resource configuration. Enhancements in the RHOSP 16 version address evolving customer requirements for enterprise cloud infrastructures:
- Industry-popular Ansible Automation for installation, upgrading, and patching.
- Open Virtual Networking (OVN), an advanced SDN framework evolved from Open vSwitch.
- Hyperconverged technology, combining storage and compute resources for lower latency and higher performance.
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.
Impact on the individual
Course attendees will learn how to operate and manage a Red Hat OpenStack Platform installation using all of the common core features and services used by enterprise private/hybrid cloud customers. Successful attendees will be able to monitor, troubleshoot, and automate operations handling compute, storage, networking, deployment, and application support resources and services tailored to their enterprise needs.
