Introduction to Containers, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift

Introduction to Containers, Kubernetes, and Red Hat® OpenShift (DO180) introduces building and managing Docker containers for deployment on a Kubernetes cluster. This course helps students build core knowledge and skills in managing containers through hands-on experience with Docker, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

This course is based on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.5 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux® 7.

Audience for this course

  • 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

This course is intended to expose students to container and container orchestration technologies, such as Docker, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift. Students learn how to containerize software applications and services. Containers are rapidly becoming a deployment technology of choice in organizations adopting DevOps principles and practices. Moving applications and services from traditional deployment platforms to container deployments make the applications deployable on a single clustered cloud architecture instead of many disparate sets of hardware configurations.

While Red Hat has created this course in a way intended to benefit our customers, each company and infrastructure is unique, and actual benefits may vary.
