Red Hat High Availability Clustering

Course ID


Course Description

Created for senior Linux system administrators, this 4-day course strongly emphasizes lab-based activities. You'll learn how to deploy and manage shared storage and server clusters that provide highly available network services to a mission-critical enterprise environment. This course also helps you prepare for the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in High Availability Clustering exam (EX436).


If you want to take this course without the exam (RH436) and have not earned your RHCE certification, you can confirm that you have the necessary knowledge by passing the online skills assessment.
