Kubernetes Certification Training

SUPPORT NO. +1 302 956 2015 (USA)

Certhippo's Kubernetes Certification Training introduces the advantages provided by containers over the virtual machines. With the rise of containerization in the world of Devops, the need of a platform to effectively orchestrate these containers also grew. Kubernetes, a platform built by Google, steps into this space to help in automating the process of deployment, scaling and managing the containerized applications across the clusters. 

Why this course ?

  • Google has put in its 15 years of deployment experience to build this platform and has open sourced it.
  • Kubernetes is fast becoming the Operating System of the Cloud - ThoughtWorks
  • Kubernetes has been deployed more widely than Docker Swarm, and is validated by Google.

  • 15K + satisfied learners. Reviews

Towards the end of the course, you will be working on a project. addiLEARN certifies you as a "Certified Kubernetes Devops Engineer" based on the project.

Certhippo's Kubernetes Certification Training introduces you with the advantages provided by containers over the virtual machines. 

You will understand why we need an orchestration tool for containers. You will also get to know the boundaries of Kubernetes – what it does and what is it not supposed to do. 

You will also understand the inherent architecture of Kubernetes – master components, node components and the addons provided by it. The course will start off with learning the basic components of Kubernetes like Node, Pod, Deployment, Services, APIs etc and then teach you to create a local cluster using Ubuntu VMs. 

You will also learn to deploy stateful and stateless apps on the cluster. Finally, you will learn, how to expose these app outside of the kubernetes cluster and will also get to know how to scale their apps either manually or using auto scaling. Learn the best security practices that must be followed during this container and cluster orchestration.

There is a huge shift in Devops from virtualization to containerization. Docker has been the buzzword in the technology sphere, in the recent past to ship applications as containers. 

A research states that there are already 10,000 companies who have adopted containers for taking their application to production and there are already 185 million containers on use in the world. The rate of adoption of Docker is increasing by 40% every year. Now that Docker has become the most integral part of production environment, various organizations are now looking out for tools that can help them effectively manage and orchestrate their containers. 

Here is when industries started adopting a Google open sourced tool called Kubernetes for effectively managing the containers.

This course is designed specifically for:
  • Professionals who want to Advance their career as a Devops Engineer
  • Professionals who want to ace the Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) program by Cloud Native Computing Foundation
  • Individuals using containers to deploy applications to production

Following are the pre-requisites:
  • Basics of Devops and it's need
