Introduction to Containers, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift (DO 180)

Overview

As a result of attending this class, students should be able to containerize simple software applications and services; deploy them with Docker, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift; test the containerized version; and troubleshoot issues with deployment.

One of the key tenets of the DevOps movement is continuous integration and continuous deployment. Containers have become a key technology for the configuration and deployment of applications and microservices. Kubernetes is a container orchestration platform that provides foundational services in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

Target Audience

  • Developers who wish to containerize software applications
  • Administrators who are new to container technology and container orchestration
  • Architects who are considering using container technologies in software architectures

Prerequisites

  • Be able to use a Linux terminal session and issue operating system commands
  • Be a Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) , or demonstrate equivalent experience
  • Have experience with web application architectures and their corresponding technologies

Course Objectives

  • Understand container, Docker, and Red Hat OpenShift architecture.
  • Create containerized services.
  • Manage containers and container images.
  • Create custom container images.
  • Deploy containerized applications on Red Hat OpenShift.
  • Deploy multi-container applications.
