Networking in OpenStack® using Neutron - H4S71S


This two-day course will take students through an in depth look at the OpenStack Network service Neutron. The result will be the skills to design and build a scalable extensible network within an OpenStack environment. The students will get hands-on lab experience of many of the course topics in a dedicated, pre-built OpenStack environment. This course assists in preparing students to pass introductory level OpenStack certification exams.

After you successfully complete this course, expect to be able to:
  • Understand the OpenStack networking components and how they work together
  • Understand the architecture and extensibility of an OpenStack based network
  • Troubleshoot an OpenStack based network
  • Helps prepare you for OpenStack certification exams including the Mirantis OpenStack Administrator Certification Associate Level (MCA100)
