In my newly appointed role as OpenStack engineer at OCF, I’m responsible for engaging with UK academia, large enterprise, and research organisations to help design and integrate HPC systems incorporating the open-source and commercially supported versions of OpenStack.
As part of on-going training and development, I recently expanded my OpenStack knowledge when I spent a week at Red Hat’s London training centre. Red Hat’s CL210 OpenStack Administration course has become the de facto certification in OpenStack and is the company’s benchmark training programme for Linux systems administrators wishing to get to grips with OpenStack. It covers all core components for their current OpenStack Platform product. As of writing, this is Red Hat OSP 6, based on the OpenStack Juno release. The rapid pace of development continues however as the OSP 7 product, based on Kilo, was released last week, only a few weeks after I completed certification on OSP 6.
