Description

This course about Proxmox VE 4.1 was made for people with no knowledge at all about Proxmox VE or virtualization. You will be able to learn the fundamentals and advanced topics by watching all the videos and practising at home or work.

Covering all areas and divided into sections according to the complexity of the topics, this course will give you strong knowledge of each of them by providing theoretical concepts, video guides and an open community to ask specific questions which can come up during learning (Udemy provides a course with a forum where students and teachers share knowledge).

The course also provides two Proxmox VE virtual machines (.OVA) already clusterized to perform all the exercises and testings. Will be available as part of "Documentation" section (last two classes).

I hope you enjoy the course! Come in! ;)

Who is the target audience?
  • This course was made for people with no knowledge at all about virtualization. However, having some experience in Linux is recommended.
  • If you are starting with Linux and Virtualization I STRONGLY RECOMMEND to start by the BOOK provided at the end of the course and then start by performing all the practices.

This video will give you an introduction to Proxmox VE 4. It's the FIRST CLASS!
You will learn the basics of Proxmox 4 by discovering the web console and some of the features available.
Enjoy the trip!

In this class we're learning the features that make Proxmox VE the best solution to set up a datacenter providing a reliable and performant environment for your VMs.

Preview 09:54

During this class you'll learn concepts about Virtualization, such as KVM and LinuX Containers and the differences between them.
Which one is the best? Easy. There's not a best. Combining both KVM and LXC is a guarantee of a high quality infrastructure.

Virtualization Basics - Concepts of Proxmox VE (KVM-LXC)
05:09

Although Proxmox VE will run in (almost) every computer -even virtualized (nested)  to practise- , it is recommended to get a low cost computer capable of running Linux (or virtualize your own Proxmox ;-) ) . Virtualization requires some disk size, memory and CPU.
All the practices shown in this course were made on an Intel i3, 4GB RAM and a 256GB SSD hard disk. 

Hardware requirements
01:38

In this class we'll install Proxmox VE 4 on Debian 8, without erasing all previous existingdata.
This installation is more flexible than the bare-metal installation. However, you will need more skills to get everything up and running. During this class, you will get everything you need!

This type of installation is the most recommended as well as the easiest one. Only few steps are needed: downloading the iso, burning it onto a cd/dvd and booting.
Don't you trust me? Take this class now ;-)

Proxmox VE provides a web console that lets us manage the host (physical) and the guests (virtual machines) without using the CLI.
During this class we'll cover basics aspects such as "how to access" and deploying our first virtual machine.

When setting up a datacenter many topics must be taken into account such as redundacy, networking and performance.

During this class you will learn all the differences among storage models and technologies to achieve success.

Choosing the best storage model

Mapping a USB device is usually one of the most common tasks we do in our daily life. Virtual Machines usually need to perform a backup to an external disk, access to a token or simply synchronize a mobile phone :)

I'll show you 2 ways of mapping, one by editing the configuration file  and other by running only one command!

This class will provide you all the knowledge to enable High Availability step-by-step.
Please, take notes and set up your own cluster ;)

This class will teach you how to define roles, grant and revoke permissions.

Isolating VMs and Storages is one of many advices you'll hear to improve security. Limiting the access to ceratin features wil keep the whole system safer.

Learn how to do it in this video!
