Gain the knowledge and skills required to install, configure and support a Linux/UNIX server

Linux and UNIX operating systems have become predominant leaders in commercial computing environments, appearing everywhere from desktops to servers. The popularity of Linux/UNIX servers and workstations in todays’ business environment requires knowledgeable and experienced systems administrators who can effectively support a wide range of system configurations, from standalone desktop machines to high-performance enterprise servers.

While Microsoft owns the majority of the market share for IT infrastructure, Linux is utilized heavily by large organizations, due to its ability to be customized more extensively. That has caused many Fortune 500 companies and government entities to migrate over to Linux, creating a large amount of open positions for IT professionals with these credentials.

Live Labs provide a true “hands-on” experience, right from the comfort of one’s home or office. You will have full access to a variety of preconfigured virtual exercises as well as the ability to practice without restriction on the lab equipment. In today’s world of complex IT systems and technologies it is essential that IT professionals are able to demonstrate how to use and understand vendor products and software. Using Live Labs allow you to develop your practical IT skills in a safe working environment without the need to invest in your own hardware and software.
