Red Hat offers training for private cloud

cloud computing building blocks

Red Hat has announced a new training scheme to help businesses looking to move to the private cloud.

The Red Hat Cloud Architecture training course will teach the skills needed to plan, build and manage a private cloud infrastructure using Red Hat's own portfolio, of course.

Products utilised in the training include Red Hat Enterprise Linux, JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation, Red Hat Network Satellite, JBoss Operations Network and Red Hat Enterprise MRG a new version of which was also launched last week.

"One of the primary barriers to adoption of cloud computing is the scarcity of skills," said Scott Crenshaw, vice president and general manager of cloud business at Red Hat.

"With this course, we're sharing the methodologies and best practices we've developed, with one goal: making the benefits of cloud a reality for more and more users."

The two-day course will be available worldwide and aims to be very hands-on, showing IT professionals how deploy hypervisors and virtual machines, as well as manage the lifecycle and resources resulting from the technology.

Bret Johnson, the senior director at Global Knowledge, the firm responsible for providing the training, has worked with Red Hat for several years on courses for IT pros.

"We've seen great demand for resources and training around cloud computing and Red Hat's new cloud training offering comes at an ideal time to help enterprise customers determine their private cloud strategy," he said.
