Course Overiew
Hi, my name is Bernd Bausch, and I'd like to welcome you to my Pluralsight course, RHCSA for Red Hat OpenStack: Using OpenStack. This course starts your journey towards Red Hat's RHCSA OpenStack certificate. In 2010, OpenStack stepped onto the scene with a bang. It's as if the world had been waiting for an open-source cloud project that actively invited any interesting party to join in. By now, OpenStack has evolved tremendously and is becoming a standard in domains like network function virtualization. After this course, you will be familiar with OpenStack's overall structure and mode of operation, and you will be comfortable performing fundamental tasks such as creating complex networking structures, provisioning servers and connecting them to networks, and automatically configuring servers. OpenStack features a browser-based GUI and a commandline interface, you will use both. The course doesn't assume any knowledge about cloud computing, but expects you to be comfortable with Linux and the Linux commandline, and to have a basic understanding of networking technology. The door is open, take the first step, and enter the world of OpenStack.
