Cloud-native technologies are reshaping the way how IT Services are built and operated. Understanding the functionalities of the building blocks and the resulting cloud-native systems will allow you to make good decisions on your way of planning and building the next generation IT and telco systems.This course will present the main features of Docker – the tool for building and running containers, Kubernetes – the platform for orchestrating containers, Helm – the package manager that allows us deploy applications in Kubernetes in a consistent way, and Istio – a Service Mesh solution for interconnecting distributed applications. It also contains an introduction to CI/CD pipelines in cloud-native systems.
This course doesn’t only deal with the basic concepts, features and building blocks of cloud-native systems but also prepares for the official Kubernetes and Cloud Native Associate (KCNA) exams of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).
