Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization

COURSE OUTLINE:

Description

In Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RH318) experienced, RHCSA-level system administrators will receive extensive hands-on training in how to use the virtualization features of Red Hat Enterprise Linux as managed through the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) suite. You will use RHEV to create and centrally manage highly available virtual systems in the enterprise in a massively scalable manner.

RH318 also prepares you to take the Red Hat Certified Virtualization Administrator (RHCVA) exam (EX318).
