Cloud is more than a buzzword these days, it is an essential component for accelerating the growth trajectory of modern businesses. OpenStack has become the defacto OpenSource infrastructure service for a number of companies, both small and large - Ebay, Cisco, IBM, HP... In this course, you will learn what OpenStack is, but more pointedly, you will learn how to work with the software to support end users whose demands might vary across a wide range of desired cloud services.
At the conclusion of this course, you will be ready to take the OpenStack Foundation's Certified OpenStack Administrator exam. And we expect you to pass it.
