Introduction to Linux Course

Whether you are just beginning to learn Linux, or you require a skills refresh—this course is the perfect starting point to kick-start your Linux journey. Our team of experts have created this course with these objectives in mind. So, what can you expect?

  Welcome to Linux 101: A Refresher Course in Linux Server Administration

Our 45Drives instructor-led training is designed to be taught remotely (via Zoom or a similar tool) or in person on the 45Drives campus.

This course will take place over two days (8 hours per day) and split into two modules: Theory and hands-on practical lessons.

For administrators keen on modernizing their IT environments, this course provides a roadmap for moving from closed, proprietary systems like Windows to agile, open-source solutions.

Training Topics:
This course has been designed from the ground up to give users the knowledge and power to administer their own Linux server. It was designed for users that have no working knowledge of Linux. However, it is also excellent for any administrators who may have let their knowledge lapse over the years and are looking for a refresher on Linux server administration.

This intro course starts with the most basic skills in Linux. You will progress gradually while building upon the skills you acquired in previous chapters. This way, you will be able to easily tackle larger concepts as you go, until you are on the level of a Linux expert.

Furthermore, this course acts as an excellent jumping-off-point to start with more advanced topics such as the 45Drives Ceph Clustered Storage Bootcamp, ZFS training and more.

Day One Curriculum:
On Day One of Linux 101, you’re going to be immersed in thorough, competent and beneficial Linux tools and terminology. Think of it like classroom-style theory.

  • SystemD
  • ZFS on Linux

These modules will provide you with the foundational knowledge to advance to the hands-on portion of Day Two.

Day Two Curriculum:

We'll cover:
  • configuring Linux VM's
  • Getting to know the CLI
  • Understanding the Linux File System
