From handling versioning to enhancing security and portability, technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes have benefitted application development and cloud deployments. Microsoft offers excellent containerization services with its Azure Container Services, and also supports both Docker and Kubernetes. With the tool docker-compose, developers can then run, scale, test and debug the application, simulating a production like an environment on their development workstations. Docker allows you to package the many application services that are part of your distributed application into self-contained standard packages called containers. If you’re looking to ship and run distributed applications with Docker as well as manage container workloads at scale with Microsoft Azure then this Course is perfect for you!
This comprehensive 2-in-1 Course follows a step-by-step approach and focuses on how to use Docker and Kubernetes to package application services into standardized units of deployment. These units are easy to deploy and run on any platform on-premise and in the cloud. Initially, you’ll write Dockerfiles for each of the application services, develop, test and run service code running inside a container and optimize your Dockerfiles to use multi-stage builds to minimize the size of the resulting Docker images used in production. Moving further, you’ll learn to make an informed decision on Container orchestration in Azure. You’ll also learn to deploy, configure and manage Azure Kubernetes service clusters. Finally, you’ll learn to deploy applications to Azure Kubernetes Service and manage Container workloads at Scale!
By the end of this course, you'll learn all about Docker and Kubernetes and will be able to configure, manage, and deploy applications on Azure Cloud.
Contents and Overview
This training program includes 2 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.
The first course, Hands-On Kubernetes, and Docker for Distributed Applications covers shipping and running distributed applications anywhere with Docker. This course shows you how Docker can be used to isolate your application services and their dependencies into a single self-contained unit that can reliably run anywhere. You will learn to build, ship and run distributed applications on any platform using Kubernetes as the orchestrator. By the end of this course, you will be able to use Docker and Kubernetes to build distributed applications that are scalable, resilient, fault-tolerant and secure. Furthermore, you will be able to deploy these applications to any Kubernetes cluster running on any platform on-premise or in the cloud.
The second course, Containerization with Docker and Kubernetes in Azure, covers getting real with container orchestration in Microsoft Azure. The course focuses on application containerization using a combination of the dynamic duo, Docker and Kubernetes. It will show you how to get hands-on and take advantage of these two tools, alongside Azure Container Services, and improve the configuration and deployment of your applications on Azure Cloud. By the end of this course, you'll learn all about Docker and Kubernetes and will be able to configure, manage, and deploy applications on Azure Cloud.
By the end of this course, you'll containerize your applications to build a production-class container infrastructure in the ‘Kubernetes way’.
