Impact of this training

Impact on the organization

This course is intended to develop the skills needed to create microservices architectures using OpenShift. Microservices is a new alternative to design 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.

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

Impact on the individual

As a result of attending this course, students should be able to perform basic administration tasks in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

Students should be able to demonstrate the following skills:

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