Virtualization on Linux with KVM and Ovirt.

Intensive course. Advanced architecture, deployment, and management.


We offer you a 3-day intensive training where you will learn everything you need to set up KVM and oVirt based services. They are the foundation of the RHEV (Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization) suite, the leading virtualization platform in linux environments. It has performance equivalent to Xen or VMWare and has no licensing costs.

It is the ideal alternative for midsize environments with Linux and Windows virtualized systems being in our opinion a more than respectable competitor of VMWare vSphere for cluster management and medium data centers. It has a bunch of interesting features such as live snapshots, a powerful hypervisor, a large community, advanced storage control, high availability, hot migration of virtual machines, and a powerful centralized infrastructure management tool.
