More and more companies choose software defined storage solutions. Reasons for this are cost reduction, scalable storage capacity, and easier administration. SUSE Enterprise Storage 5 (SES 5) is an example of such a software defined storage solution based on Ceph technology. In the two day SUSE Enterprise Storage 5 Administration (SES201v5) course, you will learn what SES 5 entails. Additionally, you will learn skills with which to manage and monitor storage clusters.


Snow Academy has several SUSE Certified Instructors, that also work for Snow’s customers as engineers or consultants. That’s why they are able to complement the theory with lots of practical examples.


Attendees should have Linux System Administration skills equivalent to SUSE Certified Administrator in Enterprise Linux 12. Familiarity with other storage solutions and distributed filesystems is helpful but not essential.
