The OpenStack Administration and Operations course is a 4 day class designed to provide you with an in-depth experience with administering and operating the most common OpenStack components to implement Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) in a private cloud; from image management to instance creation to network plugins and more. At the end of this course, you have the skills required to pass the COA exam. All Mirantis OpenStack courses are vendor agnostic. Tasks are performed in an OpenStack environment without any vendor add-ons that might change the way OpenStack works. Reference implementations are utilized, such as Logical Volume Manager (LVM) for Block Storage, Open vSwitch (OVS) for L2 networking, or KVM/QEMU for the hypervisor.

Will I get access to content after I complete a course?

You will get access to the PDF of course books and guides, but access to the recording and slides will depend on the vendor and type of training you receive.

Course trainer was excellent, content was well organized. However, labs should be instructor lead versus on your own. Much time is wasted for newbees in getting acclimated to tool set, AWS environment, navigating and setting up things to complete tasks. This was my third class and I was barely able to finish most of the labs. (The first 2 classes I only finished one lab exercise for the 2 together.)

They are very good and made sure we had all the appropriate materials for class.

great class and packed with material, would have lived to spread it more into many days but overall very informative.

The class was very vast paced however the teacher was very good at checking in on us while giving us time to complete the labs.

Overall ExitCertified is a great training provider and the remote learning is as effective as in person.
