  • Diagnose cluster health.
  • Scale OpenShift clusters.
  • Manage OpenShift resources.

Course Objectives

Impact on the organization

This course is intended to develop the skills needed to administer and operate large, fault-tolerant OpenShift clusters. You will design and implement a highly available and high-performance OpenShift cluster. These skills will allow the organization to provide and maintain a resilient platform on which developers can deploy production-scale containerized applications.

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

As a result of attending this course, you should be able to design, install, and configure a highly available and high-performance OpenShift cluster.

  • Design and install a highly available cluster.
  • Provision persistent storage using dynamic allocation.
  • Install the GlusterFS Container Native Storage solution on an OpenShift cluster.
  • Enable log aggregation across the cluster.
  • Perform diagnostics on the cluster.
  • Back up and restore critical data for the cluster.
  • Manage OpenShift and operating system resources to keep the cluster running efficiently.
  • Configure the LDAP security provider.
  • Describe and install the Open vSwitch multitenant software-defined networking provider.
