Kubernetes Administration

Kubernetes Administration

In this course you’ll learn how to install and configure a production-grade Kubernetes cluster, from network configuration to upgrades to making deployments available via services. Also handle the ongoing tasks necessary for Kubernetes administration. 


Topics include: 

  • Installation of a multi-node Kubernetes cluster using kubeadm, and how to grow a cluster. 
  • Choosing and implementing cluster networking. 
  • Various methods of application lifecycle management, including scaling, updates and roll-backs. 
  • Configuring security both for the cluster as well as containers. 
  • Managing storage available to containers. 
  • Learn monitoring, logging and troubleshooting of containers and the cluster. 
  • Configure scheduling and affinity of container deployments. 
  • Use Helm and Charts to automate application deployment. 
  • Understand Federation for fault-tolerance and higher availability. 

This course does not focus on one vendor’s tools. Most courses are vendor-locked. We use kubeadm to deploy the cluster and focus on tools that would work on anyone’s Kubernetes cluster.
