Juniper Cloud Fundamentals (JCF)


LENGTH: 24 Hours (3 days)

PRICE: £2,195.00


This three-day course provides students with the foundational knowledge required to work with basic cloud components in a Juniper environment.

The course summarizes cloud concepts, virtual networks, containerization, and cloud management.

Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring cloud automation tools and using various cloud configuration formats.

Students will also become familiar with several cloud-native applications.

Students will learn and better identify the Juniper solutions for cloud infrastructure, including virtualization (vSRX, vMX), containerization (cSRX, cRPD), and CN2.

This course is based on Junos OS Release 22.4.

Key topics include:

• Learning fundamental cloud concepts

• Identifying the concepts of Linux virtualization

• Describing the concepts of Linux namespaces

• Learning how Linux containerization works

• Identifying the basics behind a virtual network

• Understanding how software-defined networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) work

• Learning the basics of OpenStack and how to configure and implement OpenStack networking

• Describing how Kubernetes operates and examining the various Kubernetes networking utilities

• Identifying the key concepts of Red Hat OpenShift

• Reviewing the basics of Cloud-Native Contrail Networking (CN2)
