About this Hands-on Lab

Stratis is a local storage-management tool that is a technology preview in RHEL 8. Stratis is designed to be an easy-to-use solution that provides advanced storage functions. In this hands-on lab, we will manage layered storage using Stratis.

Learning Objectives

Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:

Create and Mount a Stratis Pool and Test Functionality
  1. Query for available disks.
  2. Install Stratis and its tools.
  3. Prepare disks for use in Stratis.
  4. Create a Stratis pool and filesystem.
  5. Mount and confirm its function.
Persistently Mount and Monitor a Stratis Filesystem
  1. Confirm Stratis pool and filesystem function.
  2. Configure Stratis storage to be available persistently.
  3. Confirm Stratis storage will be persistent.
  4. Use Stratis utilities to gather pool and filesystem information.
Grow, Snapshot, and Recover a Stratis Filesystem
  1. Verify Stratis storage space.
  2. Add space to the Stratis pool and filesystem.
  3. Snapshot the Stratis storage.
  4. Mount and verify the snapshot.
  5. Delete data and use the snapshot to recover.

Additional Resources

In this lab, you're a sysadmin who needs to understand what Stratis is, and how it can be implemented, on your server systems for storage use. You'll install Stratis, prepare disks for use in a Stratis pool, create a pool and filesystem, and then mount and check function on that filesystem using stratis command line tools.

You'll then add more disk space into the Stratis pool, take a snapshot of the Stratis filesystem before deleting a file, and then restore the filesystem via mounting the snapshot.

Red Hat Exam Requirements Covered:

  • Manage layered storage.
  • Access a shell prompt and issue commands with correct syntax.
