Red Hat CloudForms Hybrid Cloud Management

Manage and deploy systems in hybrid cloud environments

Red Hat CloudForms Hybrid Cloud Management (CL220) is for cloud administrators and operators who need to use Red Hat CloudForms to manage cloud instances running on multiple cloud providers or virtualization infrastructures.

In this course, students use a hybrid environment, configuring Red Hat CloudForms to work with Red Hat Virtualization and Red Hat OpenStack Platform, deploy virtual machines (VMs) with templates and customization, produce chargeback reports on VM and resource use and automations, and perform policy-based management. This course covers CloudForms tenants, interface customization, timeline and event analysis, and service provisioning.

This course is intended to develop the skills needed to simplify workload management in a hybrid cloud environment, reducing the need for training in multiple technologies. Workloads can be migrated between public and private clouds to ensure the best value is obtained, and workflow automation can reduce time spent performing manual tasks saving on labor costs.

This course is based on Red Hat CloudForms 4.
