OpenStack is a collection of software projects that work together to provide a cloud fabric.
Learning OpenStack Cloud Computing course is an exquisite guide which will help you gain a clearer understanding of OpenStack's components and their interaction with each other to build a cloud environment.
The first module, Learning OpenStack, starts with a brief look into the need for authentication and authorization, the different aspects of dashboards, cloud computing fabric controllers, along with ‘Networking as a Service' and ‘Software defined Networking'.
In the second module, OpenStack Cloud Computing Cookbook, preview how to build and operate OpenStack cloud computing, storage, networking, and automation. Dive into Neutron, the OpenStack Networking service, and get your hands dirty with configuring ML2, networks, routers, and distributed virtual routers.
The final module, Troubleshooting OpenStack, will help you quickly diagnose, troubleshoot, and correct problems in your OpenStack. We will diagnose and remediate issues in Keystone, Glance, Neutron networking, Nova, Cinder block storage, Swift object storage, and issues caused by Heat orchestration.
