Course Description

This course is for administrators, deployment engineers, or other IT team members responsible for the installation/deployment of OpenStack. The course provides participants with a detailed understanding of all of the steps necessary to deploy an OpenStack environment from scratch. Through the process of manually deploying OpenStack, rather than depending on deployment tools and scripts, students learn where to identify issues and how to overcome hurdles for when things go wrong. This course requires students to be very familiar with the command-line and to have already taken OS100 or OS110 courses. The course is broken up into two sections: lectures and labs.

The lectures provide OpenStack Architecture Recap, Production OpenStack - Use cases, best practices, configuration, CEPH Storage, and the Fuel Demo.

The labs provide students with hands-on experience through the manual deployment of OpenStack from scratch. Students will also learn to troubleshoot common issues on the same environment.

With an extensive curriculum that covers installing and verifying a wide array of OpenStack projects, including Keystone, Glance, and Neutron, the OS200 course is a logical next step for Mirantis students who have completed the OpenStack Bootcamp I (OS100).
