Mirantis Launches Hands-On OpenStack Certification for IT Professionals

New Certification Examination Allows IT Professionals to Showcase Their Practical Experience Managing and Operating Cloud Operations Within an OpenStack Environment

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/14 -- Mirantis, the number one pure-play OpenStack Company, has announced a new OpenStack certification offering: MCA200 Professional Certification. Through real-world hands-on testing, students awarded this Professional Certification by Mirantis will have demonstrated a proficient and thorough understanding of how to create, configure and manage operations within an OpenStack environment

"The demand for highly-skilled OpenStack engineers is rapidly growing," said Lee Xie, Head of Training, Mirantis. "With industry research indicating that the cloud marketplace is expected to grow at four times the rate of the overall worldwide Information Technology market, individuals with OpenStack experience must find new ways to highlight their expertise. Our newest Professional Certification is an ideal way for those individuals to showcase their proficiency with OpenStack."

Mirantis OpenStack Administrator Professional Certification grows on the popular Associate Level certification MCA100 launched earlier in 2013. MCA100, already achieved by hundreds of IT professionals around the world, measures an individual's OpenStack knowledge through a multiple choice examination. Available at the Kryterion test centers (750+ locations worldwide), this Associate Certification is designed to test an individual's knowledge of OpenStack environments, theory, best practices and troubleshooting.

Similarly to other certifications and training by Mirantis, OpenStack Administrator Professional Level (MCA200) is vendor-agnostic certification. This hands-on exam is available to every student attending the OpenStack Bootcamp by Mirantis. The examination will be made available the day following the conclusion of the bootcamp, directly at the training facility.

"The OpenStack administrator certification (MCA200) exam was a hands-on exam focusing on the practical usage and administration of OpenStack. The OpenStack bootcamp covered all that is required to do well in the exam," says Watsh Rajneesh, Staff Software Engineer at Brocade. "I had a pleasant experience in taking this exam and I found it to be very useful in re-enforcing what we learned during the training sessions. I would highly recommend getting this certification done together with the OpenStack bootcamp training."

The hands-on certification examination is available to any student who has participated in a Mirantis Bootcamp, or an IT professional who has practical OpenStack experience. Currently, the examinations are made available the day following the conclusion of a Mirantis 3-Day bootcamp. Students attending the OpenStack Bootcamp have the option to bundle the training and certification examination together.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
