Docker & Kubernetes Advanced


Containerization and DevOps are revolutionizing the Information Technology world and introducing new paradigms into everything related to network-aware application development and deployment. This course continues on from CENGN’s Docker & Kubernetes Basics course, taking the learner on an in-depth journey that starts with container creation, adds storage and networking, secures that container and configures monitoring for an Internet accessible Kubernetes-based service.

This course features hands-on labs using a 3-node cluster hosted on CENGN’s multi-vendor cloud. The labs build in sequence, starting with new container creation and adding functionality to produce a secure, web-accessible deployment using industry best practices.
