Course Description

This course will transition learners from working on a single computer to supporting an entire data center. Systems administration is the field of IT that's responsible for maintaining reliable computer systems in a multi-user environment. In this course, students will learn the infrastructure services that keep all organizations, big and small, up and running. The material focuses particularly on the cloud, covering everything from typical cloud infrastructure setups to how to manage cloud resources. Students will learn how to manage and configure servers and how to use industry tools to manage computers, user information, and user productivity, as well as learn how to recover an organization's IT infrastructure in the event of a disaster.
