Linux Virtualization and High Availability is an intensive, lab-oriented class for Linux administrators and specialists. During this training course we introduce the best practices of multiple virtualization techniques (Xen, KVM, OpenVZ and VirtualBox) and high availability systems configuration (e.g. cluster and load balancing, HA solutions in Red Hat Linux and SUSE Linux).

This training course is a practical overview of virtualization and HA techniques.

We are an approved Linux Professional Institute training partner. Linux Virtualization and High Availability covers the topics needed for LPIC-3 304 exam. After passing that exam, you will acquire LPIC-3 Linux Enterprise Professional certificate.
