Learn to automate Linux system administration tasks with Ansible and get Real-world system administration experience also determine if your knowledge, skill, and ability meet those required of a senior system administrator. Get hands-on RedHat automation tool Ansible Tower with in depth knowledge on container orchestration (Kubernetes).


An RHCE certification is earned by a Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) who has demonstrated the knowledge, skill, and ability required of a senior system administrator responsible for Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems. Any system engineer is much powerful with automation skills. Incorporating IT automation is key to managing large numbers of systems and applications efficiently and consistently at scale. In this course, you will write Ansible playbooks to automate tasks, and you will run them to ensure servers are correctly deployed and configured. You will also explore examples of how to approach the automation of common Linux system administration tasks.
