Crystal Echo’s September Rundown

It’s been a while since we last connected and there’s been plenty of activity at Crystal Echo with the on-boarding of new vendors, adjustments to support, changes to Juniper’s curriculum and new courses.

With a downhill run into 2018, now is the time to quickly book that class, pass that certification that you’ve contemplated all year, or finally attend some really good “automation training” in order to keep pace with industry developments.

Starting in 2016, Juniper introduced a number of course changes. New courses replaced old, course lab activities transitioned from physical hardware to virtual appliances, and content was added to existing courses providing a more complete learning experience. To see a summary of all the changes start here (with further highlights found in this newsletter).

Mirantis Inc. provides distribution, training and support of pure play OpenStack and Kubernetes cloud infrastructures. In line with its company philosophy delivering managed open clouds that are vendor agnostic based on open standards, Mirantis training reflects a no lock-in approach where skills learnt by engineers on training are transportable to other vendor distributions. If you’re not sure which OpenStack training to invest in we believe Mirantis is the best choice in the market today.
