Docker is the de-facto standard of Linux and Windows containers and one of the main building blocks of modern cloud-native, microservices based IT systems. And Kubernetes is the de-facto system for container orchestration, e.g. automating the deployment, scaling and management of microservices-based, containerized applications.
This course first introduces students to the main concepts of containers generally and Docker specifically and covers all its core features including: installing and basic management of Docker containers, Docker networking and storage, managing images and using Dockerfile to create and manage custom images, Docker Registry, Integrating Docker into Eclipse IDA as well as connecting multiple containers.
The second part of the course introduces participants to the basic concepts and architecture of Kubernetes, its initial install, setup and access control, Kubernetes Pods and Workloads, Scheduling and node management, Accessing the applications, Persistent storage in Kubernetes as well as its Logging, Monitoring and Troubleshooting facilities.
This course doesn’t only prepare delegates for the daily administration of Docker & Kubernetes systems but also for the official Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) and Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) exams of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).
