Supporting the adoption of container technology and container-native applications
The Container Adoption Boot Camp (DO700) immerses you in intensive, hands-on development of container-native applications deployed on Red Hat's implementation of Kubernetes, Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform. As part of enrollment, you will receive one year of Red Hat Learning Subscription Standard, which gives you unlimited access to all of our courses online, plus up to five certification exams and two retakes.
This collection of courses is based on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.9 and Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 7.5.
The Container Adoption Boot Camp (DO700) is for those seeking to make a quantum leap in their journey toward digital transformation. Making this shift involves developing software in tight iterations so that business value can be realized sooner. In order to accomplish this goal, this offering can facilitate the adoption of container-native applications, including microservices.

Impact on the organization
Microservices are a new alternative to designing modern applications, focused on working with less hardware resources and, therefore, reducing infrastructure costs. Many organizations are struggling with how to make the move from monolithic applications to applications based on microservices, as well as how to reorganize their development paradigm to reap the benefits of microservice development in a DevOps economy. In particular, many organizations are invested in Java programming frameworks and OpenShift.
This curriculum is intended to develop the skills needed to create microservices architectures using Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, a cloud solution that leverages the usage of microservices running on containers. The curriculum develops the skills needed to install, configure, and manage OpenShift to deploy containerized applications that are highly available, resilient, and scalable. You will learn to containerize software applications and efficiently deploy them to an OpenShift cluster, allowing you to take advantage of a platform and architecture that fosters DevOps principles in your organization.
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
