SUSE Enterprise Storage 5 Administration

Duration: 5 Days

Course Code: SESA5

Prerequisite:

Before taking this training student should have knowledge of Linux system administration equivalent to SUSE Certified Administrator in Enterprise Linux 12. Familiarity with other storage solutions and distributed file systems would be a plus point but it is not essential.

Course Description:

SUSE Enterprise Storage 5 Administration 5-day course introduces students to SUSE Enterprise Storage 5 Administration and help them to gain skills needed to access, administer and monitor a basic storage cluster. SUSE Enterprise Storage help IT Organizations with the ability to deploy a distributed storage architecture which will support various use cases using commodity hardware platforms.

Course Objectives:

Upon Completion of this Course, you will accomplish following:
•    Introduction to SES 5 and Ceph Architecture
•    OpenATTIC Management Console
•    Configure and access Block Storage using rbd
•    Configure and access Object Storage using the Ceph Object Gateway (RADOS-GW)
•    Configure and use File Storage with CephFS
•    Configure access to Block Storage using iSCSI
•    Configure access to Object and File Storage via NFS
•    Monitoring a SES Cluster using OpenATTIC
