Linux containers are changing the way companies think about service development and deployment. Containers play a vital role in the modern data-center, and Docker is leading the way. And Kubernetes is the leading open-source system for automating deployment, scaling and management of containerized applications.

Participants will first gain a basic understanding of Linux containers and proceed with learning the most important features of Docker Community Edition (CE) as well as their installation, initial setup and daily administration.

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 and finally its Logging, Monitoring and Troubleshooting facilities.

The third part deals with Helm, the Kubernetes Package Manager.

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).

Course parts: 1 day Docker + 3 days Kubernetes + 1 day Helm, 5 days altogether

Structure: 50% theory 50% hands on lab exercises

Target audience: System administrators, developers and DevOps who want to understand and use Docker and Kubernetes in enterprise and cloud environments.
