Open Source Virtualization (LFS462)

Seminarinformationen

Seminar - Ziel

This course provides KVM training from the ground up with a focus on QEMU and libvirt, as well as Xen. You will learn how these and other related open source components can be assembled to create a virtual IT infrastructure. There is a focus on practical deployment skills, securing the virtual infrastructure, and administering solutions, as well as detailed material about using containers. Lab exercises focus on virtual images and snapshots, deployment, VM creation and maintenance, integration with networking infrastructure, device pass-through and more.
