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.
