Training in Deployment and System management (RH401)
There is a major difference between a home cook, who only cooks for a family, and a caterer, who has a skill to cook for a few hundred people at a time. If the skill level of both the cooks is same, then it is obvious that the caterer has more job opportunities and income as compared to the home cook. The course on Red Hat Enterprise Deployment management training helps you to improve your skills to the proverbial caterer. The simplest definition and use of this course is to make you proficient enough to be able to deploy Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems on a large scale. The Deployment and Systems management course will help you in the installation and configuration of Red Hat Satellite servers. It explores the concept and methods required for Linux system. The course will also teach the benefits of building your very own RPM packages and also teaches you to manage the changes in various subversions. Various mode of training like classroom teaching, virtual classroom and on-site training makes this course more popular and unique.
The course helps you to understand the very essentials of large scale systems management, and also educates you in the details of managing such a system effectively. Red Hat Satellite helps you to link the many workspaces in an office to a central virtual command centre, and this course on deployment management will teach on the installation of Red Hat satellite. The course also covers extensively on various topics related to the management of these satellites with respect to the needs of the clients and also with respect to the updates in the systems of clients remotely. This will help any system administrator to save considerable amount of time, as he no longer needs to update a software individually in each workspace.
The course further provides you information on building of RPM packages which help you to deploy programs and files to the client systems. The need for the Red Hat satellite cannot really be understated, and the deployment and systems administration training helps you understand this need and also educate you to utilize these skills in a practical environment.
The course in only applicable to senior level system administrators, who have the experience in the field, or for students who have already completed at least the RHCE courses and server Hardening courses. A student who has not earned RHCE certification can check the prerequisite set of skills by attempting the online skills assessment. The Deployment and Systems management course also helps you prepare for the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Deployment and Systems Management (EX401) exam..
