Course Description

Course Overview

Red Hat OpenStack Administration I (CL110) is a comprehensive course designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills required to deploy, manage, and troubleshoot a private cloud infrastructure using Red Hat OpenStack Platform. This course covers the essential components of OpenStack, including Keystone, Glance, Nova, Neutron, Cinder, and Horizon. Through theoretical lectures, hands-on lab exercises, and real-world scenarios, students will learn how to configure and administer OpenStack services and gain the foundational expertise needed for cloud infrastructure management.


  • Basic familiarity with Linux system administration.
  • Familiarity with networking concepts, including TCP/IP, routing, and subnetting.
  • Basic understanding of virtualization concepts and technologies.
  • No prior experience with OpenStack is required, but some knowledge of cloud computing is beneficial.


The CL110 course follows a blended learning approach, combining theoretical lectures, practical demonstrations, and hands-on lab exercises. Instructors will deliver in-depth explanations of OpenStack components and concepts, followed by demonstrations to illustrate practical implementations. The majority of the course will be devoted to hands-on lab exercises, allowing students to deploy and manage an OpenStack environment in a simulated environment. Real-world scenarios will be used to demonstrate the application of learned concepts in enterprise-level cloud deployments.
