In this course you’ll learn how to install and configure a production-grade Kubernetes cluster, from network configuration to upgrades to making deployments available via services. Also handle the ongoing tasks necessary for Kubernetes administration.
The course is designed for practitioners interested in learning the core concepts typically used to build and administer a Kubernetes cluster in production, using vendor-independent tools.
Students should have an understanding of Linux administration skills, comfortable using the command line. Must be able to edit files using a command-line text editor.
• Installation of a multi-node Kubernetes cluster using kubeadm, and how to grow a cluster.
• Choosing and implementing cluster networking.
• Various methods of application lifecycle management, including scaling, updates and roll-backs.
• Configuring security both for the cluster as well as containers.
• Managing storage available to containers.
• Learn monitoring, logging and troubleshooting of containers and the cluster.
• Configure scheduling and affinity of container deployments.
• Use Helm and Charts to automate application deployment.
• Understand Federation for fault-tolerance and higher availability.
This course does not focus on one vendor’s tools. Most courses are vendor-locked. We use kubeadm to deploy the cluster and focus on tools that would work on anyone’s Kubernetes cluster.
Be sure to consider the U5KUB11G: Kubernetes Essentials for App Developers course.
