PLUMgrid said it is launching an advanced training and certification program tailored to organizations that want to accelerate the mastery of SDN-based OpenStack clouds among their network engineers and cloud architects.

PLUMgrid University´s comprehensive curriculum on OpenStack networking, teaches IT professionals how to move beyond the basic networking “starter kit” that comes with OpenStack and move up to designing, building and operating enterprise-wide scalable and secure virtual network infrastructures based on OpenStack.

Courses at PLUMgrid University are taught by the company´s senior OpenStack networking experts, who collectively have trained over 1,000 cloud engineers and architects who, in turn, have implemented more than 70 OpenStack clouds around the globe.

Designed as a blend of theory and comprehensive hands-on labs, the Advanced OpenStack Networking Certification program addresses virtual networking design and technology principles; multi-tenancy; and advanced deployment scenarios for OpenStack networking. Students will deeply explore the implications of the transition from physical networking to virtual networking and consider the implications in terms of security, high availability, manageability and more.
