Introduction to Kubernetes Training

Level: Foundation

Kubernetes (k8s) is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and containerization of applications. Kubernetes provides a cloud-agnostic container orchestration system and is supported by most major cloud providers.

In this 2-day hands-on Kubernetes course, you will learn to deploy containerized applications on Kubernetes, and scale those applications to handle dynamic traffic. You also learn how to continuously deploy new application versions in a Kubernetes cluster to provide application updates with no downtime. This course ends with a section on Kubernetes security and the Kubernetes ecosystem of tools including Helm and Rancher.

Key Features of this Kubernetes Training:

  • After-course instructor coaching benefit
  • Learning Tree end-of-course exam included

You Will Learn How To:

  • Containerize applications to implement microservices architectures
  • Create EKS clusters
  • Install and configure kubectl
  • Deploy containers to a Kubernetes cluster
  • Perform rolling updates and blue/green deployments of application versions
  • Autoscale the number of running pods
