LPI Virtualisation & Containerisation (LPIC305)

Get certified in container and virtualisation infrastructure management with LPIC305 Virtualisation and Containerisation certification. LPIC-305 certified that one can plan, implement and maintain core container and virtualisation infrastructure whether on-premise or in the cloud.

It provides the holder with the skills and knowledge to architect container and virtualisation solutions and troubleshoot issues at the bare metal layer of the virtualisation stack. Manage your own infrastructure as a service solution with LPIC305.

LPIC-305 Course Objectives

  • Topic 351: Full Virtualization
    • 351.1 Virtualization Concepts and Theory

      Candidates will learn and understand the general concepts, theory and terminology of virtualization. This includes Xen, QEMU and libvirt terminology.
