Arista LINUX essentials

As the scale of computing grows and the scale of Linux deployments grows with it, IT professionals need to keep up with the pace of that growth. Arista’s switch technology is a combination of advanced hardware and software, at the center of which is the Extensible Operating System, designed and built around a core of Linux. This course will familiarize students with the background and history of UNIX/Linux systems, dive into how a Linux system runs and show how to interact with it proficiently. Students will leave the class with a base level of knowledge around the available tools and techniques that lead to Linux proficiency, allowing them to build further. Written and taught by Adam Levin, a seasoned trainer at Arista Networks, this class will give students just the edge they need in the modern world of network automation.


Anyone new to Linux/UNIX, or with only a basic beginner understanding of Linux, will gain knowledge and skills to be a more effective Linux administrator, and therefore a more effective Arista network administrator.
