About this course

This course will provide you with an introduction to container and container orchestration technology using Docker, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. You will learn how to containerize applications and services, test them using Docker, and deploy them on a Kubernetes cluster using Red Hat OpenShift. Additionally, you will build and deploy an application from source code using the Source-to-Image facility of Red Hat OpenShift.

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.

This course will benefit developers who want to containerize software applications, administrators who are new to container technology and container orchestration, and architects who are considering using container technologies in software architectures.
