Devops TechLab Kubernetes 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.

Course Objective

The objective of a Kubernetes course is to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of Kubernetes and its ecosystem, including its core concepts, architecture, and components, as well as how it manages containerized applications and orchestrates their deployment.

Program Outcome

Upon completing the Kubernetes course, participants will:

  • Develop a deep understanding of Kubernetes and its key concepts.
  • Gain knowledge of Kubernetes architecture and components.
  •  Acquire practical skills to deploy and manage containerized applications using Kubernetes.
  •  Learn how to scale and monitor applications in a Kubernetes cluster.
  •  Understand advanced Kubernetes features like networking, storage, and security.
  •  Become proficient in troubleshooting and debugging Kubernetes deployments.
  • Prepare for industry-recognized Kubernetes certifications, if applicable.
  •  Gain the confidence to effectively leverage Kubernetes for container orchestration in real-world scenarios.
