Why Linux Skills are Important for Network Engineers

  • Linux is everywhere. Supercomputers, most of the servers on internet, IOT devices, and many mission-critical devices relies on Linux.
  • Linux is the most popular operating system and is the LINGUA FRANCA of the modern data centers.
  • Linux is one of the most popular operating systems in the world that is embraced by individual users, government entities, and serves as the underlying operating system.

  • With the advent and adaption of technologies (SDN & NFV) in enterprises, Cloud, and Service Provider environments, Linux has become a must-have skill for network engineers.
  • Network Automation tools such as Ansible, Netmiko, NAPALM, and others are well used and maintained on Linux operating system.
  • SDN controllers such as OpenDaylight, Open Network Operating System (ONOS), RYU Controller, and Cisco’s APIC-EM Controller run on Linux.
  • All major networking vendors use Linux as is the underlying operating system on their routing, switching, and security devices. Cisco, Juniper, VMware, F5, Arista, Ruggedcom, Cumulus Networks are some examples of networking vendors that use Linux.
  • Linux is mandatory for Cybersecurity Engineers and Certified Ethical Hackers to learn. Linux distributions such as Kali Linux, Parrot Security OS, BackBox, BlackArch, and many more are well developed for penetration tools.

Requirements / Pre-requisites

It is recommended to have Associate Level Knowledge in any Networking certification (CCNA, JNCIA, HCNA)
