Red Hat OpenShift Administration II: Configuring a Production Cluster (DO280)

 

Course Overview

Configure and manage OpenShift clusters to maintain security and reliability across multiple applications and development teams.

Red Hat OpenShift Administration II: Configuring a Production Cluster (DO280) prepares OpenShift Cluster Administrators to perform daily administration tasks on clusters that host applications provided by internal teams and external vendors, enable self-service for cluster users with different roles, and deploy applications that require special permissions such as such as CI/CD tooling, performance monitoring, and security scanners. This course focuses on configuring multi-tenancy and security features of OpenShift as well as managing OpenShift add-ons based on operators.

The skills you learn in this course can be applied using all versions of OpenShift, including Red Hat OpenShift on AWS (ROSA), Azure Red Hat OpenShift, and OpenShift Container Platform.

This course is based on OpenShift Container Platform 4.14.

Following course completion, you will receive a 45-day extended access to hands-on labs for any course that includes a virtual environment.

Who should attend

  • Platform Administrators, System Administrators, Cloud Administrators, and other infrastructure-related IT roles who are responsible for managing and maintaining infrastructure for applications

Course Objectives

Impact on the organization

This course is intended to develop the skills needed to manage Red Hat OpenShift clusters and support containerized applications that are highly available, resilient, and scalable. Red Hat OpenShift is an enterprise-hardened application platform based on Kubernetes that provides a common set of APIs and abstractions that enable application portability across cloud providers and traditional data centers. Red Hat OpenShift adds consistency and portability of operational processes across these environments and can also be deployed as a managed service. A Red Hat SRE team shares the responsibility of managing Red Hat OpenShift clusters with a customer’s IT operations team when using a managed OpenShift offering such as Red Hat OpenShift on AWS (ROSA) or Azure Red Hat OpenShift (ARO).

Impact on the individual

As a result of attending this course, students will be able to perform the set of tasks that OpenShift cluster administrators are expected to perform in their daily jobs for on-premises, cloud-based, and vendor-managed clusters, including enabling add-on operators. Students will also be able manage multi-tenant permissions for different roles and configure applications that require privileged access to cluster and host resources.
