This course lays the groundwork for your Kubernetes journey. You’ll learn foundational knowledge on containers and how they work.
This course lays out the case for container orchestration and provides an overview of the concepts underlying Kubernetes, the leading container orchestration platform.
In this course, you'll learn how to bootstrap Kubernetes clusters using various community tools. We'll also dive into topics like authentication, role-based access control, and backing up and restoring Kubernetes objects and clusters.
Networking in Kubernetes
Pods running in a Kubernetes cluster have to be able to communicate among themselves as well as with the outside world. In this advanced-level course, we will look at the Kubernetes network model and how pods are connected to the network to satisfy it. We'll also touch on what the Container Network Interface (CNI) is and how different CNI providers deal with implementing it.
The Cluster API is a Kubernetes project to bring declarative, Kubernetes-style APIs to cluster creation, configuration, and management. This tooling can be leveraged to manage your Kubernetes estate as first-class Kubernetes objects. In this course, we'll review the components, resources, and providers of Cluster API, as well as providing an overview of provisioning and managing Kubernetes clusters with Cluster API.
