This intermediate Docker and Kubernetes training prepares learners to choose the best containerization platform for your needs, and how to use the platform you choose: Docker, Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, or a combination.
Kubernetes' popularity as a container orchestration solution has increased in recent years, and most people have assumed that its popularity would eventually pit it against Docker — the de facto leader in the container world.
But it's not entirely accurate to set up Docker and Kubernetes as rivals — because they're not direct competitors. Docker is a containerization platform, and Kubernetes extends its operability by being a container orchestrator. But then along comes Docker Swarm, Docker's own native clustering solution for Docker containers. This Kubernetes and Swarm training will make sure you understand the technologies and how to optimize them for your container needs.
After completing this DevOps training you'll know how to choose the best containerization platform for your needs, and how to use the platform you choose, Docker, Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, or a combination.
For IT managers, this DevOps training can be used to onboard new DevOps professionals, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a DevOps reference resource.
