PRIVATE TRAINING CLASSES

 

Our courses are conducted like guided labs, where your time is spent building a private cloud and developing skills working directly on OpenNebula.

 
 

STANDARD AND CUSTOMIZED COURSES

 

Our Training Services team offers several beginner, intermediate and advanced courses that provide your IT staff with the skills they need to install, configure, customize and operate OpenNebula. For customers or partners that require training to meet specific needs, we offer custom-designed, on-site training courses.

 
 

OpenNebula Introductory Tutorial

Overview

This is a beginner level course designed to introduce IT professionals to OpenNebula. The course covers the process of installing, configuring and operating enterprise clouds and virtualized data centers using OpenNebula. This course helps anyone who wants to set up a small scale OpenNebula test environment to gain experience working with OpenNebula. Students will be able to learn cloud architecture design, planning and installation, a general understanding of technical and business capabilities of an OpenNebula cloud, and basic configuration and usage of its main components.

Methodology

This is an interactive course, where the attendees operate on their own labs with a 3-node OpenNebula cloud, which are provided during the course. OpenNebula provides an abstraction layer on top of the infrastructure and technologies deployed in the datacenter. In order for the attendees to get the best understanding possible of OpenNebula as a whole, the labs used during the course make use of the most common open-source technologies that can be used to deploy an OpenNebula cloud. For example, the hypervisor technology used during the course will be KVM, shared file-system for storage, and regular linux bridges and linux firewall for networking. Other technologies supported by OpenNebula will be addressed and discussed as well.

Location

Private courses are available on-site at your facility or remotely over the internet. The remote courses are given by the same instructors in an interactive, virtual environment and feature exactly the same contents and hands-on labs as the on-site training.

Audience

Specifically designed for:

  • IT Administrators
  • Data Center Staff
  • System Administrators
  • Systems Integrators
  • System Architects.

Contents

  • An introduction to cloud computing with OpenNebula
  • The architecture of the cloud
  • Planning and installing OpenNebula
  • Virtualization hosts management
  • Basic datastore configuration
  • Basic virtual network creation
  • VM Template creation & instantiation

Hands-on Labs

Attendees are grouped into groups of one or two people. Each group receives a lab, consisting of one OpenNebula frontend node and two hypervisors, accessible through SSH. Attendees are the owners and administrators of their labs. They are able to launch virtual machine, make any configuration changes, debug any problems, access the GUI and the CLI.

Length

4 hours

Skills Gained

  • Describe the features and benefits of using virtualization and clouds
  • Describe different architectures for a cloud that can be deployed with OpenNebula
  • Installation of OpenNebula
  • Basic configuration and use of main cloud components

Prerequisites

No prior OpenNebula skills are required, but participants should have working knowledge of virtualization, networking and Unix/Linux systems.

Material

The instructor will rely on a set of PDF documents that will be explained throughout the course. These documents will be made available to the attendees right at the very beginning of the course. Attendees need a laptop to connect to their hands-on labs.

Certification Exam

This course is also excellent preparation for the OpenNebula Certified Practitioner exam (course fee includes one exam registration to be used just after the course).

OpenNebula Administration Tutorial

Overview

This is an intermediate level course designed to explain the configuration and management of the different subsystems of a cloud infrastructure. Additionally the program addresses advanced topics and provides a very brief introduction to integration of OpenNebula with other components in the data center. This course is for system Administrators who are primarily responsible for operating OpenNebula clouds, and for developers deploying applications and infrastructure on OpenNebula.

Methodology

This is an interactive course, where the attendees operate on their own labs with a 3-node OpenNebula cloud, which are provided during the course. OpenNebula provides an abstraction layer on top of the infrastructure and technologies deployed in the datacenter.
