You have created an OpenStack cloud, set up networks, and launched servers on them. In this second stage of your journey to OpenStack mastery and RHCSA/OpenStack certification, you will work with storage and create an autoscaling application.
This is the second step towards RHCSA/OpenStack certification, or a way for you to simply master in using and managing OpenStack clouds. The first step showed you how to create networks in an OpenStack cloud and run, configure, and manage virtual servers. In this course, RHCSA for Red Hat OpenStack - Using OpenStack (Storage and Orchestration), you will complete the acquisition of user-level skills required for obtaining the certificate. First, you will learn how to create and manage storage volumes, attach them to virtual servers, and boot servers from them. Next, you will explore OpenStack's object storage service: Swift. Finally, you will discover how OpenStack's telemetry and orchestration services work together to allow the creation of self-scaling cloud applications.
When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills to use an OpenStack cloud.
Course Overview Hello, I am Bernd Bausch. Welcome to the second part of Pluralsight course, RHCSA OpenStack Using OpenStack. By now you know how to create networks in an OpenStack cloud and launch instances on them, but there is more to explore. In this course, you will connect storage to your instances, and launch and configure instances automatically. At the end, you will have the user-level skills required for getting Red Hat certificate RHCSA OpenStack. Among the OpenStack core services, two are dedicated to storage. You will learn how to create block storage volumes, which you can compare to disk array LUNs, and connect them to your instances. We will also learn how to manage Swift, OpenStack's object storage solution and the answer to Amazon's S3. Single instances are nice, but the purpose of a cloud is running applications. You will use OpenStack's Telemetry services and its Orchestration service Heat to automate the setup of complex self-scaling applications. After this course, you will be ready for the next stage, managing an OpenStack cloud. But first, let me take you to the second part of the journey through OpenStack.
