Red Hat Virtualization (RH318) teaches experienced system administrators how to use the virtualization features of Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® managed through the Red Hat Virtualization suite.

Students acquire the skills and knowledge to effectively create, deploy, manage, and migrate Linux virtual machines hosted on either dedicated Red Hat Virtualization Hypervisor nodes or Red Hat Enterprise Linux servers using Red Hat Virtualization Manager.


Prerequisites for this training:

IT professionals who have earned an Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) certification or maintain the equivalent experience with Linux.

Experienced Linux system administrators responsible for managing enterprise servers who are interested in learning how to manage large numbers of servers or virtual machines using Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.

Course content summary

  • Deploy Red Hat Virtualization.
  • Configure Red Hat Virtualization environment (datacenters, clusters, and storage domains).
  • Install, manage, and troubleshoot virtual machines (servers and desktops).
  • Create virtual machine snapshots.
  • Use templates for rapid virtual machine deployment.
  • Secure Red Hat Virtualization environment with multilevel administrative roles.
  • Monitor and create custom reports.
  • Migrate virtual machines and explore high-availability options.

Impact on the organization

This training is intended to develop the skills needed to improve efficiency within a virtualization environment. Expected results include reducing IT infrastructure costs by virtualizing more workloads on less hardware while avoiding vendor lock-in. This class will train virtualization administrators to work more efficiently by using Red Hat Virtualization to deploy, manage, and monitor virtualization environments. Doing so will result in faster response times for users requesting and using virtualized resources.

Red Hat has created this course in a way intended to benefit our customers, but each company and infrastructure is unique, and actual results or benefits may vary.

Impact on the individual

As a result of attending this training, students should be able to create and deploy virtual servers and workstations. Using a single full-service management interface, Red Hat Virtualization Manager, students will be able to configure, manage, and migrate systems within the virtualization environment.

Students should be able to demonstrate the following skills:

  • Deploy Red Hat Virtualization
  • Configure, install, and deploy virtual machines
  • Migrate virtual machines between hypervisor hosts
  • Perform troubleshooting tasks
  • Secure and monitor the virtualization environment
  • Generate custom operational, environment, and resource reports
