Course Conclusion

Next Steps


This course is designed to prepare you for the LPIC-3 304 Virtualization and High Availability exam. The material on this course will mirror the public objectives provided by LPI (https://www.lpi.org/our-certifications/exam-304-objectives). The course will open with an introduction to virtualization and many of the key concepts. Once we have a base understanding of virtualization, we will move on to specific virtualization platforms and utilities. The second half of the course is focused on High Availability. This section will cover the concepts and theories of high availability, and then move on to practical application. Some of the areas covered will include load balanced and failover clusters, as well as clustered storage and file systems.
