Virtual servers and storage systems, 7.5 credits
The course is based on lectures on virtualization and storage systems architecture and the methods and techniques for planning, handling and maintenance.
Each student group contstructs its own platform for virtualization, with vSphere server administration, ESXi servers as hypervisors and related storage systems with SAN technology. This platform is then used as a an environment for virtual servers, virtual private network (switched) and iSCSI-based storage. The environment is then raised to production quality with technologies for resource allocation, high availability, fault tolerance and security. The course also deals with methods for creating and managing virtual machines by including templates, scripts, monitoring.
Completed course requirements of 60 credits in Computer Engineering including the courses GNA100 Fundamentals of Network and Internet Technology, 7.5 HE credits, OGL200 Operating Systems with GNU/Linux, 7.5 HE credits and DAO100 Computer Architecture and Operating System, 4.5 HE credits or PDA115 Personal Computer Technology and Maintenance, 7.5 HE credits or similar courses.
