Many institutions have been adding Linux machines to their existing infrastructure: perhaps to give developers a platform of their choice, to provide an alternative to a network server, or perhaps to introduce an additional piece to the security jigsaw.

Linux systems are also being introduced as part of virtualisation environments (for example, with the use of VMware or XEN, KVM or VPC), allowing access to a mixture of operating systems from a single workstation or server. This course will give the delegates the skill set preparing them for a successful future with Linux technology, by discussing a hybrid of topics that span user and administrator tasks and activities.

This course, together with the Advanced Linux Administration, has been designed to meet the objectives of the industry standard Linux certification from Linux Professional Institute, specifically preparing for LPIC-1 (LPI-101 and LPI 102) exams. Please notice that LPI exams are not included in the course. Before attempting the LPI examination, the delegates are encouraged to follow this course with the advanced administration training and then consolidate their knowledge in a real life working environment.
