Self-paced training

Getting started with Red Hat CloudForms and its service catalog (replay)

In this lab, we’ll start with the simple installation and configuration of Red Hat CloudForms. You’ll gain hands-on experience as you explore typical use cases for installing CloudForms into both new and existing environments. You’ll also set up a service catalog and work with provisioning workflow scenarios that vary from simple to advanced. Assistance will be provided throughout the lab by some of the most experienced Red Hat solution architects, consultants, and technical product managers who help our customers successfully create and manage their clouds.

This lab is also offered on Tuesday from 1:20-3:20 p.m..

Protecting your data with Red Hat Storage Server

Whether it’s the fear of data loss through system or datacenter failures or data theft by parties whose intentions are unknown, there is no shortage of things to keep you up at night. In this session, we’ll guide you through how Red Hat Storage Server can help you sleep better knowing your data is protected against multiple failure scenarios, including theft. You’ll learn how to use Red Hat Storage Server to encrypt and replicate your data locally as well as remotely, and how to access the data securely over SSL.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux on Amazon EC2 with Amazon Virtual Private Cloud

In this 2-hour lab, you’ll:

  • Use an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) to launch secure, private instances of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
  • Use the AWS Web Console to create a key pair, security groups, and launch instances with user data.
  • Review VPC connectivity options including hardware and software VPN, bastion hosts, and NAT.
  • Launch and configure a bastion host and use that host to securely connect to private Amazon EC2 instances.

You’ll leave this lab with an understanding of the Amazon VPC security model, including subnets and routes, security groups, user data, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux on Amazon EC2, and a $25 AWS credit.

Getting started with Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform

In this lab, you’ll get hands-on experience with Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4. We’ll guide you through the typical use cases and common interactions with the platform, including instance, network, and volume creation and administrative tasks.

The lab requires no previous experience with OpenStack and is intended to be an introductory session with direct access to a pre-configured environment.

Getting started with Red Hat CloudForms and its service catalog

Implementing storage with OpenStack

In this lab, we’ll investigate the configuration of Red Hat Storage Server, based on GlusterFS technology, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. You’ll learn how to integrate Red Hat Storage Server with the Glance, Cinder, and Nova services to provide the image, volume, and ephemeral storage infrastructure common to every OpenStack implementation. As a bonus exercise, we’ll implement the object store built into Red Hat Storage Server via the Gluster-4-Swift components to provide Swift API cloud storage to our OpenStack environment.
