Posted on March 26, 2018

Red Hat OpenStack Administration III CL310: Networking & Foundations of NFV, has been completely rewritten to align with the rest of the OpenStack learning path and updated for Red Hat OpenStack Platform 10 (RHOSPv10).

The success of Eighty four percent (84%) of Communications Service Providers (CSPs) consider OpenStack to be an essential part for it. The most frequently cited benefit is helping CSPs offer services more quickly. This course addresses the most common use cases in the market for growing demand for telcos and enterprises.

Network Function Virtualization (NFV) architecture provides private cloud and telecommunications operators with a virtual network framework that is scalable and cost effective. The Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure – NFVi component of NFV is the underlying platform that provides virtualization services. Red Hat OpenStack Platform is an NFVi provider that allows cloud operators to implement network functionality in software such as firewalls, load balancers, intrusion detection, and routing that enable an NFV architecture.

CL310 teaches trainees how to approach performance tuning in an NFV environment to support high-throughput, large-scale applications and functions. CPU management, memory management, and networking configuration, such as DPDK, are highlights of this redesign. Although this course was structured primarily for telcos, every topic in this course benefits any enterprise customer that wants to improve their OpenStack private cloud network performance.

This version of CL310 matches the current Red Hat OpenStack versions of CL110 and CL210, all developed on Red Hat OpenStack Platform 10. They now make up a matching suite of courses. This release of CL310 replaces an earlier version of the course released on RHOSPv6. RHCSA in Red Hat OpenStack – EX210 certification or equivalent experience and Red Hat OpenStack Administration II – CL210 or equivalent experience are necessary prerequisites for this course. Trainees who were EX210 certified in RHSOPv8, or who took the RHOSPv8 versions of Red Hat OpenStack Administration I and II, can successfully take this new updated CL310 course.
