High Availability Online Training
In this intermediate Juniper skills training, Knox Hutchinson covers the concepts, components, applications and tools for high availability in Junos.
Juniper Networks offers an alternative to Cisco products, with outstanding innovation and efficiencies. Given the role of cloud-based apps and the internet in our daily work and home lives, High Availability is no longer optional. Luckily, it’s baked into every Juniper system. You just need to configure it. After watching this Junos training, you'll know how to configure and monitor high availability components LAG and RTG, Virtual Chassis, GR, GRES, NSR, and NSB, VRRP, and ISSU.
For anyone who leads a technology team, this Juniper training can be used for on-boarding new network administrators, as a Juniper reference resource, or curated into individual or team training plans.
Note: This training no longer maps to Juniper's current certification objectives. However, this learning track still retains value as a training resource.
High Availability: What You Need to Know
Our Junos high availability course maps to learning objectives of previous Juniper certification exams and covers topics including:
- Identifying and taking advantage of high availability opportunities in Junos
- Configuring and monitoring high availability components like Link Aggregation Groups (LAGs) and Redundant Trunk Groups (RTGs)
- Managing Junos OS tools like Virtual Chassis, GR, GRES, NSR, and NSB
- Using Junos high availability applications such as Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) and Virtual Router Redundancy Protocols (VRRP)
- Troubleshooting with tools like trace options, show commands, and logging
- Optimizing performance with Unified In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU)
Who Should Take High Availability Training?
This High Availability training is considered administrator-level Juniper training, which means it was designed for network administrators. This High Availability skills course is designed for network administrators with three to five years of experience with network infrastructure.
New or aspiring network administrators. Configuring and monitoring high availability components on Junos is admittedly an obscure part of network administration, but new admins should always have their eyes to the future, looking for ways to set themselves apart with unique excellence in the field. Although the Juniper Networks Certification Program testing requirements have changed, this course still covers essential material in using high availability to keep your networks up.
Experienced network administrators. One thing that separates junior network administrators from more serious, professional ones is whether their high-traffic networks are supported by redundancies and reliability safeguards. This high availability training will help you understand the tools and resources that are at your disposal with Juniper network services that guarantee the stability and deliverability of your network. This training may not apply directly to a Juniper certification anymore, but the information is as applicable for Junos networks as it's ever been.
