Impact on the organization
This course is intended to develop the skills needed for the daily operation of a private cloud. A private cloud can reduce costs through fine-grained resource control, simplifying regulatory compliance, and permitting easier integration with legacy systems. Using the skills taught in this course, cloud operators will be able to manage and operate hybrid cloud Red Hat OpenStack Platform infrastructure.
Customer organizations will find this version to be easier to install and manage while handling more diverse types of cloud and legacy workloads with an expanding portfolio of flexible resource configuration. Enhancements in the RHOSP 16 version address evolving customer requirements for enterprise cloud infrastructures:
Industry-popular Ansible Automation for installation, upgrading, and patching.
Open Virtual Networking (OVN), an advanced SDN framework evolved from Open vSwitch.
Hyperconverged technology, combining storage and compute resources for lower latency and higher performance.
