Install, operate, and maintain Runtime Fabric on an existing Kubernetes environment on Amazon EKS, AKS, or GKE. Anypoint Runtime Fabric™ is a container service that automates and orchestrates the deployment of Mule runtimes across any environment with centralized management through a single MuleSoft-hosted control plane. It is distributed as a package that is installable on an existing Kubernetes environment on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), or Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). You operate and manage the Kubernetes environment. In the hands-on exercises, this course uses a Kubernetes cluster on Amazon EKS, but the steps are the same with minor command changes for a Kubernetes cluster on AKS or GKE.

Skills Gained

  • Describe the features, benefits, and architecture of Runtime Fabric.
  • Install and configure Runtime Fabric on self-managed Kubernetes.
  • Deploy Mule applications to Runtime Fabric.
  • Perform maintenance tasks using command-line tools.
  • Scale Runtime Fabric deployments for performance and high availability.
  • Use Anypoint Monitoring for alerts, dashboarding, and monitoring.

Who Can Benefit

This course is for Anypoint Platform administrators including operations personnel, developers, and architects who want to get hands-on experience installing, configuring, and using Runtime Fabric on a managed Kubernetes solution provided by AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud.

  • Note: This course does NOT teach you how to operate and manage a Kubernetes environment; your company needs to already have this expertise to use Runtime Fabric on self-managed Kubernetes. If you instead want to get experience with our integration platform as a service, take the Anypoint Platform Operations: CloudHub 2.0 course, and if you want to stay completely in your own-hosted environment, take the Anypoint Platform Operations: Customer-Hosted Runtimes course.

Prerequisites

  • A knowledge of system administration and server commands
  • A basic understanding of data formats such as XML, CSV, and JSON
  • A basic knowledge of working on Linux systems
  • A basic understanding of remote connection mechanisms such as SSL and SSH
  • (Optional, but useful) A basic understanding of containerization concepts and technologies
