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.
