Introduction to building and managing docker containers for deployment on a Kubernetes cluster

Introduction to Containers, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift (DO180) introduces building and managing Docker containers for deployment on a Kubernetes cluster. This course helps students build core knowledge and skills in managing containers through hands-on experience with Docker, Kubernetes, and Red Hat® OpenShift Container Platform. The video classroom version is only available on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.5 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

This course is based on Red Hat® OpenShift Container Platform 3.9 and Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 7.5.

Course overview

As a result of attending this class, students should be able to containerize simple software applications and services; deploy them with Docker, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift; test the containerized version; and troubleshoot issues with deployment.

One of the key tenets of the DevOps movement is continuous integration and continuous deployment. Containers have become a key technology for the configuration and deployment of applications and microservices. Kubernetes is a container orchestration platform that provides foundational services in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

Impact of this training

Impact on the organization

This course is intended to develop the skills needed to create microservices architectures using OpenShift. Microservices are a new alternative to designing modern applications, focused on working with less hardware resources and, therefore, reducing infrastructure costs. OpenShift is a cloud solution that leverages the usage of microservices running on containers.

While Red Hat has created this course in a way intended to benefit our customers, each company and infrastructure is unique, and actual benefits may vary.

Impact on the individual

As a result of attending this course, you should be able to perform these basic tasks in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform:

  • Create containerized services using Docker.
  • Manage containers and container images.
  • Create custom container images.
  • Deploy containerized applications on OpenShift.
  • Deploy multi-container applications.
