Course Details


The Virtualization and High Availability (LPIC-3 304) course is a lab-oriented training for Linux administrators and specialists.

During this 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). The LPIC-3 304 course also provides a practical overview of virtualization and HA techniques.
