The Perfect Kubernetes Training Series for DevOps Engineers, Application Developers, Network Administrators and more.

This three course Kubernetes training series covers areas related to administration, development and containerizing applications. Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It was originally designed by Google and is now maintained by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

DevOps engineers are always in demand. Kubernetes training series will cover topics related to installing Kubernetes, exposing applications, career demand and salaries, and so much more!

Our Kubernetes Training Series contains the following courses:

What is Kubernetes?

  • Kubernetes (also known as K8s) is an open-source platform for automating the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It was originally developed by Google and is now maintained by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).
  • Kubernetes provides a way to deploy and manage containerized applications in a consistent and reliable manner, regardless of the infrastructure on which they are running. It does this by providing a number of features, including:
  • Container orchestration: Kubernetes is designed to automatically deploy, scale, and manage containers across a cluster of servers.
  • Load balancing: Kubernetes can automatically distribute traffic across a group of replicas of a service, ensuring that the application remains available even if individual instances fail.
  • Self-healing: Kubernetes can automatically detect and replace failed containers, ensuring that applications continue to run smoothly even in the face of failures.
  • Configuration management: Kubernetes provides a way to define the desired state of an application and its components, and it will automatically ensure that the application is running in that state.
  • Kubernetes is widely used in a variety of environments, including on-premises data centers, public clouds, and hybrid cloud environments. It is an important tool for managing modern, container-based applications at scale.

Who Should Learn Kubernetes?

  • Kubernetes is a powerful tool for automating the deployment and management of containerized applications, and it is widely used in a variety of environments. As such, there are a number of professionals who may benefit from learning Kubernetes, including:
  • DevOps engineers and site reliability engineers: These professionals are responsible for managing the infrastructure and systems that support software development and deployment, and learning Kubernetes can be an important skill in this role.
  • Application developers: Many application developers are now building and deploying their applications as containers, and learning Kubernetes can help them understand how to manage and deploy these applications in a reliable and scalable manner.
  • IT professionals: IT professionals who are responsible for managing infrastructure and applications may also benefit from learning Kubernetes, as it can help them deploy and manage containerized applications more effectively.
  • Cloud architects: Kubernetes is widely used in cloud environments, and learning Kubernetes can be an important skill for cloud architects who are responsible for designing and implementing cloud-based solutions.
  • Overall, anyone who is responsible for managing or deploying containerized applications may benefit from learning Kubernetes.
