Cloud is more than just a buzzword these days. It is an essential component for accelerating the growth trajectory of modern businesses. 

OpenStack has become the de facto open source infrastructure service for a number of companies, both small and large. In this course, you will learn what OpenStack is, and--most importantly--you will learn how to work with the software to support end users whose demands may vary across a wide range of desired cloud services.

This is a five day, intensive, instructor-led course. There are four days of live instruction and a final day of review and certification exam preparation.

COURSE COST: $4997
