Course description

Platform9 Managed OpenStack (PMO) is a Software-as-a-Service OpenStack offering that simplifies the creation and management of an OpenStack cloud. A PMO cloud provides ease in managing your OpenStack cloud middleware to create a cloud system on the hardware of your choice. You as the end-user or cloud owner still need to efficiently and effectively manage the workloads you are deploying to that cloud.

A PMO cloud gives you the ability to architect and easily deploy the compute network and storage configurations your particular use case demands. This course will provide you with the necessary understanding of how OpenStack works and best practices to consider when deploying and managing your cloud workloads on a PMO cloud.

  • Describe the basic underlying services/projects that comprise OpenStack and

    • Describe their function relative to IaaS uses
