High Availability Linux Architecture

High Availability Linux Architecture

You can’t afford to have mission-critical systems go down, and this course will teach you how to ensure that your servers stand up under even the most intense pressure. 


Developed for some of the largest Linux deployments in the world, this course will teach you: 

  • How to create and maintain systems that allow for highly-available applications. 
  • The concepts and best practices used to meet security and high availability requirements using the latest hardware technologies. 
  • You’ll also become familiar with tools that help you maintain and operate highly-available systems easily. 

This course is designed to work with a wide range of Linux distributions, so you will be able to apply these concepts regardless of your distro. 

Perfil de los alumnos

This course is designed for IT managers, system administrators, DevOps, and technical personnel operating highly-available mission-critical Linux systems. 

Requisitos previos

Students should have a good working knowledge of fundamental operating system and hardware concepts and experience with network addressing and topologies. A basic foundation in mission critical deployments will also be beneficial. 


Our team of highly qualified instructors combine training activities with the development of their profession as experts in the field of IT. Professionals certified by the major manufacturers capable of transferring an enjoyable and easy to understand technical concepts more abstract.

Active and participatory course through demonstrations, practical exercises and clinical analysis of users of all the theoretical topics taught by the instructor in order to deal with real cases of the related product. The trainer will also use different dynamics that allow group work in the classroom as challenges, evaluation exams and real cases to prepare for the associated Linux Foundation certification exam, if there is one. 


Continual evaluation based on group and individual activities. The faculty will give continuous feedback and at the end of the activities to each participant.  

During the course the participants will complete an evaluation test that must be passed with more than 75%. They will have one hour available for its realization.


Se emitirá Certificado de Asistencia sólo a los alumnos con una asistencia superior al 75% y Diploma aprovechamiento si superan también la prueba de evaluación.
