Red Hat Gluster Storage Administration with Expertise exam – RH237 consists of Red Hat Gluster Storage Administration – RH236 training and Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Hybrid Cloud Storage exam – EX236. Given that contains two components, this package offers a more favourable invested – obtained ratio.

Red Hat Gluster Storage Administration – RH236 is for senior system and storage administrators who are interested in deploying scalable, highly available storage on off-the-shelf hardware and in cloud environments.

Red Hat Gluster Storage Administration is part of our emerging technology series of courses. These courses focus on Red Hat’s newer, evolving technologies. Emerging technologies courses are feature- and functionality-focused and are conducted like guided labs, with little lecture.

Course overview

Students will learn how to install, configure, and maintain a cluster of Red Hat Storage servers. The course will also explore highly available common Internet file systems (CIFS) and network file systems (NFS) using Clustered Trivial DataBase (CTDB), unified file and object storage, and geo-replication. Finally, students will learn about the Hadoop plugin for Red Hat Storage, snapshots, and geo-replication.

This training will prepare you for the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Hybrid Cloud Storage exam – EX236. After passing EX236 you will become Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Hybrid Cloud Storage. This certification is part of the Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA) path and EX236 can be recognized as one of the five required exams.
