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.

This hands-on course is designed for anyone wanting to learn how to deploy containerized workloads on Kubernetes.

Course FAQs

The hands-on exercises include:

Kubernetes (k8s) is an open-source orchestration system that facilitates deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications to run in many different cloud-based environments.

The course uses AWS’s Kubernetes platform (EKS) for exercises and demonstrations. But course content is platform independent and covers integration of Kubernetes with Various Cloud providers and non-cloud environments.

The course provides a brief review of containers and Docker best practises. The course introduces how to containerize applications and how to architect applications.
