It is important for you as a network engineer to learn Linux!

Why? There are many reasons including:

1) A lot of network operating systems are based on Linux, or have a Linux shell you can access, or use Linux type commands. I'll show you an example using Cisco, Arista and Cumulus Linux.

2) Network Automation tools such as Ansible don't run the command node on Windows. You are probably going to use Linux with tools such as Ansible, Netmkio, NAPALM and other network automation tools.

3) SDN controllers such as OpenDaylight, ONOS, RYU and APIC-EM run on Linux.You will find that many SDN tools require Linux.

4) DevOps tools such as git work best with Linux.

5) IoT devices typically run Linux

6) A new breed of network devices from companies like Facebook, Microsoft and Cumulus Linux use Linux.

There are even more reasons, but make sure you don't get left behind! You as a network engineer start learning Linux.

This course teaches foundational Linux knowledge without assuming that you have any Linux experience. Learn practically with GNS3!

Learn how to configure Linux networking, how to create users and assign permissions, how to install and run Linux services such as DNS and DHCP.

The course uses various GNS3 topologies with devices such as:

1) Linux Docker containers

2) Linux GNS3 QEMU virtual machines

3) Traditional Linux virtual mahcines

4) Network devices - you could use Cisco, Arista, Cumulus Linux or others

Do you want to see something else added to the course? Just let me know. I like to get your feedback on ways I can improve the course and add more content that you think is relevant.

Networking is changing. Make sure you keep up to date!

Cumulus Linux combines the power of Open Networking with a network
operating system that runs on top of industry standard networking
hardware from vendors such as Dell, HP, Quanta and others. Founded by
veteran networking engineers from Cisco and VMware, Cumulus Networks
makes the first Linux operating system for networking hardware and fills
a critical gap in realizing the true promise of the software-defined
data center. Just as Linux completely transformed the economics and
innovation on the server side of the data center, Cumulus Linux is doing
the same for the network. It is radically reducing the costs and
complexities of operating modern data center networks for service
providers and businesses of all sizes.

By providing a software-only solution, Cumulus Linux is enabling
disaggregation of data center switches akin to the x86 server
hardware/software disaggregation. Data-center networking is rapidly
standardizing on merchant silicon and with Cumulus Linux, networking is
adopting the principals of Linux and disaggregation of the compute
world.

When we started working on SDN 5-6 years back, not much information or help was available regarding SDN. Getting started with this emerging concept was very difficult. It was really very painful process. Now we do not want this to happen to the persons who at this point of time want to enter into this field. This Course starts from basics & takes you to advance levels of Software Defined Networking. Everything has been explained by giving examples. Proper lab setup along with diagrams has been given so that you can constructs the labs yourself & do the practice. This work covers topics such as SDN lab setup, basics of SDN, Mininet Emulator, Mininet Topologies, POX SDN Controller, ovs-ofctl etc.

According to industry people and research scholars, SDN is going to redefine networking and cloud world. This is the biggest thing that has happened in networking field in last 30 years. SDN is a New Way to Design, Build and Operate Networks. There is a Need to Innovate in the Network. We’ve seen tons of innovation in applications, devices, computing and storage, yet the underlying network that connects everything has remained unchanged. SDN Opens the Network Up for Innovation. It replaces static, inflexible and complex networks, with networks that are agile, scalable and innovative.
