Linux is the #1 operating system for web servers, cloud computing, smart phones and consumer electronics. Due to its high adoption rates and continued growth, there’s a shortage of Linux system administrators. This course will teach you the skills and processes you need to work as a professional Linux systems administrator.

Skills Gained

You’ll learn how to administer, configure and upgrade Linux systems running one of the three major Linux distribution families (Red Hat, SUSE, Debian/Ubuntu). You’ll also learn all the tools and concepts you need to efficiently build and manage a production Linux infrastructure.

Who Can Benefit

The course is ideal for those new to IT, or those who have worked with operating systems other than Linux and want to move into a career administering Linux systems. Aspiring cloud professionals will also benefit from understanding Linux administration as it serves as the basis of most cloud instances.
