Introduction to building and managing containers for deployment on a Kubernetes and OpenShift 4 cluster
Red Hat OpenShift I: Containers & Kubernetes (DO180) introduces students to building and managing containers for deployment on a Kubernetes cluster. This course helps students build core knowledge and skills in managing containers through hands-on experience with containers, Kubernetes, and the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform needed for multiple roles, including developers, administrators and site reliability engineers.
This course is based on Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 8.2 and OpenShift® Container Platform 4.6.
Course content summary
- Container and OpenShift architecture
- Creating containerized services
- Managing containers and container images
- Creating custom container images
- Deploying containerized applications on OpenShift
- Deploying multi-container applications
Containers and Red Hat OpenShift have quickly become the de facto solution for agile development and application deployment. Administrators and developers are increasingly seeking ways to improve application time to market and improve maintainability.
This course provides the gateway to organizational and digital transformation by providing an understanding of the potential of DevOps using a container-based architecture. Orchestrating a container-based architecture with Kubernetes and Red Hat OpenShift improves application reliability and scalability; decreases developer overhead; and facilitates continuous integration and continuous deployment.
This course is the starting point for our Red Hat OpenShift curriculum, establishing the foundation needed to advance to Red Hat OpenShift development or administration.
