Kubernetes Training Overview

Kubernetes Training for DevOps Mastery

Our Kubernetes training will make you a container orchestration  master with its focus on hands-on labs and coverage of the concepts and components that make Kubernetes possible.

By understanding the technical challenges behind container orchestration and the solution provided by Kubernetes you will be armed with the tools necessary to keep up with any changes in Kubernetes sub-systems and components in what is a rapidly evolving technology.


Why Kubernetes?

Kubernetes has won the container orchestration war and is set to be the de-facto container orchestration standard. Kubernetes popularity is due to its component based architecture which allows differing implementations of components to be swapped in and out thereby allowing for experimentation and different solutions to address the differing needs of the Kubernetes community.

Besides its great community Kubernetes allows for  release-management,  updates with near-zero downtime, version rollback, and clusters that can ‘self-heal’. With built in service discovery, replication and management tools, Kubernetes makes managing container a breeze.

Kubernetes Skills in Demand

As cloud native architecture become the default way to build applications the demand for skills to manage and deploy cloud application, whether on-premise or via a cloud provider has increased exponentially. Get the Kubernetes training you need to help meet the growing demand for container orchestration skills.
