Open Source Virtualization takes a deep dive into KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) and Xen, the most popular hypervisor virtualization technologies in the open source ecosystem, as well as the deployment and use of containers. Built by experts in the field of virtualization, this course provides the technical background to understand the components required to build and administer a modern virtual IT infrastructure.

Skills Gained

This course provides KVM training from the ground up with a focus on QEMU and libvirt, as well as Xen. You will learn how these and other related open source components can be assembled to create a virtual IT infrastructure. There is a focus on practical deployment skills, securing the virtual infrastructure, and administering solutions, as well as detailed material about using containers. Lab exercises focus on virtual images and snapshots, deployment, VM creation and maintenance, integration with networking infrastructure, device pass-through and more.

Who Can Benefit

This course is for technical IT professionals interested in building a reliable, efficient and open virtualization infrastructure with KVM. Students are expected to have mastered the skills covered in the lower level Linux Foundation System Administration courses. Students are expected to be well­ versed in Linux command line usage, shell scripting and text file editing.
