Docker, Kubernetes and OpenShift 3 for Developers Training Course


Docker is an open-source platform for automating the process of building, shipping and running applications inside containers.

Kubernetes goes one step further by providing the tools needed to deploy and manage containerized applications at scale in a clustered environment.

OpenShift Container Platform (formerly OpenShift Enterprise) brings Docker and Kubernetes together into a managed platform, or PaaS (Platform as a Service), to further ease and simplify the deployment of Docker and Kubernetes. It provides predefined application environments and helps to realize key DevOps principles such as reduced time to market, infrastructure as code, continuous integration (CI), and continuous delivery (CD). OpenShift Container Platform is maintained by Red Hat and runs atop of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

In this instructor-led, live training, participants will learn how to use OpenShift Container Platform to deploy containerized applications.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Create and configure an OpenShift setup.
  • Quickly deploy applications on-premise, in public cloud or on a hosted cloud.

Format of the Course

  • Part lecture, part discussion, exercises and heavy hands-on practice.
