The Linux Foundation is delivering a 4-day, hands-on training course that provides the knowledge and skills needed to successfully engineer, provision, maintain, and administer high-availability clusters to support mission-critical workloads. Heavily focused on mission critical workloads, High Availability Linux Architecture focuses on concepts and best practices used to meet security and high availability requirements using the latest hardware technologies such as Intel Xeon Processor E7 Family, driven by current open source tools found in the three main Linux distribution families.
