Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The graduate of the course Virtualization II will gain awareness of the possibilities of virtualization and containerization on workstations as well as on server platforms. Students will have the opportunity to verify the acquired knowledge within practical exercises. The main content of the course Virtualization II is to provide students basic information about virtualization and containerization. Students will then be able implement the best virtualization solutions and solutions based on containerization for a specific task in practical exercises.

The course Virtualization II will give students extended knowledge about the possibilities of using virtualization and containerization, both on personal computers and on a server platform. As part of the study of this course, students will gain a theoretical and practical information for the installation and configuration of various virtualization and containerization tools. Students will be able to distinguish these tools according to their purposes and will also be able to properly configure them for the operation of virtual systems, both in terms of networks, network resources, backup and in terms of security and stability of the proposed solution.
