Hi everyone and welcome, my name is Andrew Mallett, otherwise known as the theurbanpenguin. Let me introduce to you my very latest Pluralsight course LFCS: Linux Virtualization Management. I am the owner of the urban penguin in the UK, I train and consult in Linux administration and dabble in development, pretty much l like to build and work with deployment systems.

In this course we are preparing you for real life Linux administration which includes the practical based exam delivered by the Linux Foundation and Red Hat. These exams test you on what you can do and no just what you can remember. The title may give it away that we are looking at Virtualization.

Pristine and open source in the Linux environment we will be running KVM virtual machines and managed via Libvirt We are going to see how to setup and manage KVM and this is going to include:

  • Installing Virtual Machines using the inbuilt PXE Services
  • Migrating running virtual machines between KVM hosts
  • Managing light-weight container solutions with Docker

By the end of the course you will be well versed in in how you will be able to create your own virtualized environment using KVM Before beginning the course you should have sat the LFCS: Linux Essentials course or have similar knowledge along with the LFCS: Linux Service Management course as we refer back to PXE, FTP and kickstart files.
