OpenStack: Managing Identities and Objects

by Andrew Mallett

OpenStack administrators are in short supply. This course will help you gain your Certified OpenStack Administrator certification, and of course aid in understanding OpenStack management.

What you'll learn

OpenStack administrators are in short supply. In this course, OpenStack: Managing Identities and Objects, you'll develop an understanding of OpenStack management. At the core of OpenStack is Keystone, the identity service. First, you'll begin with a detailed look at managing Keystone Identities and setting up the V3 API. Next, with identities mastered, you'll discover Glance and creating your own Master Images. Additionally, you'll learn how to create multiple Cinder back-ends so you can allow the users to choose their storage type. Virtual machines may also need additional volumes which are provisioned by Cinder. Finally, you'll explore Swift, which allows files and other objects to be stored in the cloud. Understanding these major OpenStack services will have you on your way to mastering OpenStack. By the end of the course, you'll be efficient in working with Keystone, Swift, Cinder, and Glance OpenStack services.
