Course Objectives

Impact on the organization

This course is intended to develop the skills needed to produce highly available, more resilient, mission critical applications, resulting in reduced downtime and easier hardware maintenance.

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, students should be able to create, manage, and troubleshoot highly available network services and tightly-coupled cluster storage for business-critical applications.

Students should be able to demonstrate the following skills:

  • Improve application uptime by using high availability clustering
  • Manage storage in an high availability environment using iSCSI initiators, HA-LVM or CLVM as appropriate, and GFS2 cluster file systems
  • Implement strategies to identify single points of failure in high availability clusters and eliminate them

Course Content

Created for senior Linux® system administrators, this 4-day course strongly emphasizes lab-based activities. You'll learn how to deploy and manage shared storage and server clusters that provide highly available network services to a mission-critical enterprise environment.

This course also helps you prepare for the Red Hat Certified Specialist in High Availability Clustering exam (EX436).
