NEWS & EVENTS
NDG is pleased to announce that the following Red Hat Academy System Administration Labs have been added to our supported curriculum content options for NETLAB+. The lab content is accessed directly from the Red Hat Academy online portal. Instructions for accessing the labs are included within the NETLAB+ lab designs, please also refer to the release notes.
Red Hat System Administration I (RH124-RHEL9) These labs provide a foundation for students wishing to become Linux system administrators by introducing key command-line concepts and other enterprise-level tools. RH124 is designed for IT professionals without previous Linux administration experience. The course provides students with Linux administration “survival skills” by focusing on core administration tasks.
Red Hat System Administration II (RH134-RHEL9) These labs are designed for students who have completed RH124; these labs go deeper into enterprise Linux administration, including file systems and partitioning, logical volumes, SELinux, firewalling, and troubleshooting.
The completion of these two courses in the Red Hat Academy allows learners to take the EX200 certification exam that grants the Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) certification.
Please note that participation in the Red Hat Academy program is required. For more information on these and other labs supported by NETLAB+, please see our list of NETLAB+ content.
We’d like to make you aware of several updates to our supported content offerings. The release notes pages linked below provide details, including instructions on updating the content on your NETLAB+ system (via the Course Manager in the NETLAB+ administrator interface and/or deploying updated VM OVAs).

Thank you for choosing NETLAB+ to support your educational programs. NDG is pleased to announce two new additions to our library of supported labs for NETLAB+:
Network Management: These labs provide hands-on experience with network management tools to analyze and understand network traffic and network protocols. Learners are introduced to network protocols such as NetFlow, IPFIX, and along with networking tools such as Nfdump, Wireshark, Open vSwitch, GoFlow, and Grafana.
P4 Programmable Data Planes – Applications, Stateful Elements, and Custom Packet Processing: These labs provide hands-on practice with a variety of applications, stateful elements, and custom packet processing using P4 Programmable Data Plane switches in a Software-defined Networking (SDN) paradigm.
The development of the labs listed above was supported with funding from the National Science Foundation Award 1829698 “CyberTraining CIP: Cyberinfrastructure Expertise on High-throughput Networks for Big Science Data Transfers” and Award 2118311 “Cybertraining on P4 Programmable Devices using an Online Scalable Platform with Physical and Virtual Switches and Real Protocol Stacks” at the University of South Carolina (UofSC).
