Course Description
Virtualization is everywhere, but how do you get started? You could use a cloud provider to handle running all your hardware, but maybe you already have hardware lying around, or you've seen companies cloud bills and know the cloud is not the right path. Did you know there has been a production grade virtualization platform in standard Linux OS's for years? Its also free? KVM or Kernel Based Virtualization forms the basis for both large and small virtualization deployments around the world, and its open source too! KVM is a core part of any linux administrators skillset, and this course will walk you through the basics. Setting up your machine, installing your first VM, managing storage and networking. At the completion of this course you will be able to run your own KVM deployments, running dozens, hundreds or even thousands of virtual machines on one totally free platform.
