Storage Server Administration (RH236)

Red hat storage server is open storage software which is used for the management of an unstructured data available for the cloud environment. It is very efficient and will be useful without compromising on the basis of performance and scale. It will teach you about the installation and configuration and also its maintenance. It also focuses on common internet file system and network file system using CTDB, object by storage and geo – replication. Storage server administration will help in introduction to red hat storage and understand server features and the terminology to explore the classroom environment and to gain familiarity with it. This sounds very cool, does it not?

After that, comes the installation process, which will involve installing the server with the basic configuration, to build a volume to understand the different types of volumes. Not just this, it will also help in access the data on red hat storage server volumes from different types of clients with the ACLs and quotas to implement the quotas and access to control it by extending them, to grow storage volume online. Storage server administrations help in configure to geo replication, swift to object access and troubleshooting and will perform basic tasks. It will also manage the snapshots in the red hat storage and learn about the hadoop plug-in configuration. It teaches us as to how to install, configure and maintain a cluster. This course will also explore a highly available common internet file system (CIFS) and network file system by using a cluster trivial data base, unified file and the object storage. Storage server administration training will help you in prepare for the right expertise in hybrid cloud storage. This course will make you ready for a world of success and bright opportunities surrounding you!

The perquisite of this training is Linux system administration and the storage administration! They are also responsible for the maintaining the large storage cluster by using red hat storage. In this certification, an equivalent level of knowledge will be highly recommended. After the completion of the course, you will be able to demonstrate the skill and the knowledge, which will be needed to implement storage solutions for and the hybrid cloud and on premise by using the Red hat Storage server administration.
