Overview

This course builds on your existing experience with systems operations and administration to provide you with the knowledge and skills required to configure, manage, operate, and troubleshoot a Linux environment by using security best practices, scripting, and automation.

For many years, Linux has dominated the server install base in the business world—and it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Linux’s popularity has led to a greater need for information technology (IT) professionals who can manage servers that run some form of the Linux kernel.
