This is a hybrid on-demand and instructor led course. The instructor led portion of this course builds on the basic Kubernetes concepts introduced and skills you gained the in KUB100 course. You will then learn how to extend Kubernetes core functionality through enhanced storage, networking, and monitoring capabilities.
You may read the KUB100 course description for details about the on demand course. The instructor led portion will introduce you to kublet managed service extensions, such as service containerization. You'll build on your basic networking knowledge by working with kubernetes and SDN networking, including policy implementation and security. You'll dive into how to manage persistent storage for ephemeral containers. We'll introduce you into the powerful Prometheus monitoring toolset and how to monitor both your Kubernetes infrastructure and the applications you are running.
At the end of the course, you have the opportunity to take a certification exam that will prove your competency at deploying and managing Kubernetes, based on the skills you've acquired during the class.
