ZL150: Advanced Solutions for Linux on System z

מק"ט: #6196 | משך קורס: 32 שעות אק'

This course provides attendees with the knowledge to prepare their Linux on System z for production. Students customize z/VM for Linux, install Linux, define network connections, and define a VSWITCH. They create different types of journal file systems and a Logical Volume Manager. A security topic addresses alternate authentication methods and explains how to harden Linux security. Students employ various security measures. Students create Linux clones, as well as VM shared segments for the Linux kernel. Topics also include Linux clusters and methods for backing up data. Finally, students install and use Webmin to perform administrative activities and use other performance measurement tools.
