This course is aimed at the following audiences:

  • Virtual Machine Administrators interested in moving virtualized workloads from traditional Hypervisors to OpenShift Virtualization
  • Kubernetes Administrators (Cluster Administrators, Clusters Engineers) interested in supporting containerized and virtualized workloads in the same OpenShift cluster
  • Site Reliability Engineers interested in using GitOps and Ansible Automation to manage Virtual Machines on OpenShift


Course goals

By attending this training you will learn to deploy and manage virtualized workloads on OpenShift and manage these workloads using both traditional ways, such as SSH and Ansible, and also modern DevOps practices, such as GitOps and CI/CD.

This course provides:

  • Skills required to create, access, and manage VMs on OpenShift clusters
  • Skills required to control usage and access of cpu, memory, storage, and networking resources from VMs using the same Kubernetes features that would also control usage and access to these resources for containers.
  • Sample architectures to manage High Availability (HA) of VMs using standard Kubernetes features and extensions from OpenShift Virtualization.
  • Strategies to connect VMs on OpenShift to data center services outside of their OpenShift cluster, such as storage and databases
