This is an in-depth course that focuses on two key areas, Linux high availability (HA) clustering and HA storage administration. Storage is integral to many HA clusters to make use of clustered storage technologies to enable active/active configurations.
Over the course of many in-depth lab exercises, each student will assemble a realistic three-node Linux cluster utilizing best practices. Each node has three network interfaces and each student’s cluster has its own dedicated cluster VLAN.
The class contains a storage array for shared LUNs among the nodes. This enables students to perform very real world tasks in a real world setting, including multipathing, redundant ring communication, last man standing cluster, and shared storage scenarios.
Course topics include:
This course requires an advanced knowledge of Linux system administration. These skills are taught in the H7091S “Enterprise Linux Systems Administration” and U8583S “Linux Fundamentals”.
