About this Course
This specialization introduces Red Hat Enterprise Linux system administration and private cloud capabilities of IBM Power Systems. To demonstrate these concepts, we will use IBM Power servers. Through three courses, you will learn a range of concepts from how to get started with Linux using Linux in a large private cloud environment with OpenStack-based products such as IBM PowerVC.
What will you learn from this IBM Power Systems Specialization?
- Access the command line.
- Manage files from the command line.
- Manage local Linux users and groups.
- Monitor and manage Linux processes.

This course will provide you with a basic introduction to Linux® skills using Red Hat® Enterprise Linux 8. It will show you how a Linux system is organized and will demonstrate introductory system administration tasks, which you will practice on your own.
You will get to know the reasons why Linux and the open-source development model are so important in today’s computing environment. Everywhere Linux systems are used—the internet, point-of-sale systems, and the world’s stock markets. You’ll find Linux running smart TVs, in-flight entertainment systems, and most of the top supercomputers in the world.
There are many reasons why it is valuable for you to learn Linux. If you are looking for new opportunities in IT, Linux skills are in high demand. For example, if you are developing applications, your application or its runtime is likely hosted on Linux. If you’re working in the cloud, your cloud instances may are on Linux, and your private or public cloud environment is also probably based on Linux. If you’re working with mobile applications or the Internet of Things, it is also likely that your device’s operating system is Linux. And, if you use Windows, you’ll need to interoperate with Linux.
After completing this course, you will have a solid introduction to working with Linux from the command line, using Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 as a model. In applying these skills, you will be able to perform fundamental operational tasks, whether your Linux machine is on your desk or a remote system across the Internet.
- This course introduces administrative tasks that a system administrator can perform with Linux hosted on IBM Power servers.
- It includes virtualization concepts such as logical partitioning, installing Linux, command-line operations, and more interesting administration and device management tasks.
- This course includes hands-on exercises with systems from an IBM data center.
IBM PowerVC, and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) enabling software, provides a self-service cloud console for managing IBM Power Systems built on OpenStack. OpenStack is a collection of open-source software projects that enterprises can use to run their private cloud infrastructure.
This course explains most cloud management features, starting with setting up a private cloud environment from the ground up. It then covers planning, sizing, and other advanced administrative tasks you can perform to become an efficient system administrator.
Project for the IBM Power Systems Specialization
These courses include detailed hands-on exercises (step-by-step guides), which teach a range of concepts from how to get started with Linux to using Linux in a large private cloud environment. After completing this specialization, you should be able to perform most Linux system administration tasks with ease.
