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.

  • 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.

Skills Gained

Topics Include:

  • 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.

Prerequisites

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. A knowledge of Cloud Native application concepts and architectures (such as is taught in our free Introduction to Kubernetes edX MOOC) is helpful for this course.

Fantastic instructor, good overview of content and ability to answer questions

I learned a lot of directly usable skills from Tech Data. It will make an immediate impact in our work center.

This is my second class with this Tech Data ExitCertified Personnel. I learned so much in BigFix Foundations and BigFix Inventory. Very well organized training instructors and well organized course contents and labs. I am glad I have attended.

I've taken 2 AWS courses at ExitCertified both of them IMVP, they're my training provider of choice!

Good in providing online courses and rescheduling was followed up very well, but the earbuds promised were not sent.
