Storage Server Administration (RH236)

Red Hat Storage Server is open software used for management of unstructured data available for cloud environments. This storage server is very efficient and useful without compromising on performance and scale. The Red Hat Storage Server Administration course will help you efficiently deal with this type of server. It will teach you about installation, configuration and its maintenance. It will also focus on Common Internet file systems and network file systems using CTDB, object storage and geo-replication.
