Design and deploy a high availability cluster
Red Hat® High Availability Clustering (RH436) provides intensive, hands-on experience with the Pacemaker component of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux High-Availability Add-On, as well as cluster storage components from the Resilient Storage Add-On, including Cluster Logical Volume Manager (CLVM), Red Hat Global File System 2 (GFS2), and Device-Mapper Multipath.
This course is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1.
Created for senior Linux® system administrators, this 4-day course strongly emphasizes lab-based activities. You’ll learn how to deploy and manage shared storage and server clusters that provide highly available network services to a mission-critical enterprise environment.
This course also helps you prepare for the Red Hat Certified Specialist in High Availability Clustering exam (EX436).
- Install and configure a Pacemaker-based high availability cluster
- Create and manage highly available services
- Troubleshoot common cluster issues
- Work with shared storage (iSCSI) and configure multipathing
- Configure GFS2 file systems
Impact on the organization
This course is intended to develop the skills needed to produce highly available, more resilient, mission critical applications, resulting in reduced downtime and easier hardware maintenance.
Impact on the individual
As a result of attending this course, students should be able to create, manage, and troubleshoot highly available network services and tightly-coupled cluster storage for business-critical applications.
Students should be able to demonstrate the following skills:
- Improve application uptime by using high availability clustering
- Manage storage in an high availability environment using iSCSI initiators, HA-LVM or CLVM as appropriate, and GFS2 cluster file systems
- Implement strategies to identify single points of failure in high availability clusters and eliminate them
