Subject specific learning outcomes and competences
Students will acquire knowledge and hands-on experience of modern technologies for GNU/Linux that are used in complex enterprise environments. Using these technologies, students will be able to design and implement solutions based on GNU/Linux servers for various application scenarios of such servers. The extent of the acquired knowledge corresponds to the level of Red Hat certifications.
Generic learning outcomes and competences
Improved knowledge of operating systems and their administration.
The course covers advanced topics of administration of Linux/Unix operating systems as well as services typically running on such systems. The course emphasizes practical training of administration skills.
The course allows students to get deeper knowledge of selected advanced topics of administration of Linux/Unix operating systems as well as services typically running on such systems.
Prerequisite kwnowledge and skills
User-level proficiency in GNU/Linux operating system.
Corequisite knowledge and skills

Syllabus - others, projects and individual work of students
- Preparation of automated installation and configuration for virtual machines.
- Installation and configuration of SW RAID and LVM.
- Installation and configuration of iSCSI.
- Building a high availability cluster.
Points for both the homeworks and the final practical test will be assigned based on an evaluation of the systems or their components installed and configured by the students.
The knowledge and experience gained by the students is evaluated through 4 homeworks covering the contents of the course (4x 15 points) and further through a final practical test (40 points). The practical test has the form of having to install a system according to some predefined requirements in some given time limit.
To successfully pass the course, a student needs to get at least 50 points in total out of which at least 24 points must be obtained from the homeworks and at least 16 points from the final practical test.
