VIRTUAL - OpenShift 4 Infrastructure Architecture Workshop

Target audience: Architects and Presales


Based on recent developments and the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19, we have established a policy to not run in-person training sessions for the near future. This in-person training (ILT) will be run as a virtual ILT (vILT). Information regarding this change will be communicated via Email to registered attendees. 

The purpose of this virtual workshop is to show attendees the benefits, the architecture, the installation and the operational management of Red Hat ́s Container Platform „OpenShift“ Attendees learn during these two days how to present, design and architect an OpenShift installation on-premise and to install it different public clouds.

The main focus is on the infrastructure of OpenShift there is only very little development in this training.

This workshop covers:
Architecture, Installation, Management, Networking, Storage, Container Runtime Features (CRY-O) modern registry implementation (QUAY), Virtualization (CNV), running on different HW Platforms (Power), running different Solutions (IBM Products on OCP)
