About the course

With applications collecting and storing more and more data, it may not be all that surprising that managing local storage can become quite cumbersome.

In this course, we will explore how to create your own software-defined storage (SDS) without having to spend lots of money on software. We’ll start off with an introduction to the open source software Linstor, covering topics like what Linstor is and the terminology you will need to be familiar with. Then, we’ll move on to setting up Linstor on your Linux servers, where we’ll talk about topics such as storage pools, volumes, and DRBD.

Upon completion of this course, you will have a set up a complete working Linstor software-defined storage solution running on Linux.

What are Hands-on Labs

What's the difference between theoretical knowledge and real skills? Practical real-world experience. That's where Hands-on Labs come in! Hands-on Labs are guided, interactive experiences that help you learn and practice real-world scenarios in real cloud environments. Hands-on Labs are seamlessly integrated in courses, so you can learn by doing.
