The IT Server Management course is an established field, but one that continues to evolve significantly in recent years. The IT course for Linux is highly comprehensive and practical, aimed at career development in the field of infrastructure management and Linux server administration, with specialization in open-source methodologies.

What do the IT Bootcamp for Linux server management include?

  • Linux Administration Course
    A practical IT Bootcamp specializing in Linux operating system management. It includes studying the file system structure, working with the Linux Kernel (device driver management), user and group configuration, network card configuration and connection to the local network / internet, common commands, permissions, implementation of bash scripting, and more.
  • Practical preparation for certification exams:
    LPIC-1 exam 101 – The certification exam for Linux Level 1, Part A, tests foundational knowledge such as Linux installation, permissions, file manipulation, security, and more. Those holding this certification demonstrate their expertise in the widely-used operating system in the technology market in Israel and internationally.
    LPIC-1 exam 102 – The certification exam for Linux Level 1, Part B. This exam covers more advanced topics such as networking management, advanced installations, secure communication using various protocols, automation, and more.
  • Beyond the preparation course for LPIC-1 certification.

Advantages of the Linux Operating System

Linux is the world's most popular operating system and is widely used in the IT industry. Many companies, large corporations, internet providers, governments, and more utilize Linux for a wide range of purposes, such as:

Operating data servers, Telephony systems, Firewalls, Communication hubs, Embedded system development, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), and more.

The reason for the popularity of the Linux operating system stems from several key advantages it possesses, for example:

  • Linux is written in open-source code and is free of charge.
  • Linux has a supportive community that improves versions, numerous forums with developers who help solve issues when needed, and more.
  • High security.
  • Top-notch processing and performance capabilities.

The demand for IT professionals in the industry.

There are significant advantages for an organization when it maintains its own infrastructure. Self-managing server administration can lead to ongoing and efficient work, depending on the organization's size and nature of activities.

Security and safeguarding the confidentiality of personal and business information, problem-solving, server and resource management, configuration, log management and tracking, rapid recovery protocols when needed, and more.

Due to these numerous benefits, many companies choose to internally manage their infrastructure and be exclusively responsible for this operation. This fact results in a high demand for Linux server management professionals with practical and professional experience in the field, who are interested in further specialization and professional development within the organization.

Today, there are immense amounts of data on the network, and companies are dealing with larger quantities of data than ever before. Additionally, tasks and technological advancements lead to much greater activity.

Intensive work with servers in the form of methodologies such as DevOps, artificial intelligence development, data science, etc.

Currently, working as IT professionals, server administrators, for a variety of companies, involves being responsible for server maintenance, ongoing activities, configurations, permission management, security testing, and more. Some companies provide hosting services, while others choose to manage the entire operation internally.
