Kubernetes Training Course

Our Kubernetes (k8s) training course will ensure you have the skills necessary to ride the container orchestration wave barreling through the Devops world.  Kubernetes is the solution for deployment automation, scaling, and management of your containerised applications.

See more about our Kubernetes (k8s) training course at our dedicated site.

Kubernetes eases the management and discovery of your micro-services. With 15 years of experience running production workloads at Google and combining the  best-of-breed ideas and practices of the Devops community, Kubernetes is the must have skill in a containerised world.

Audience: This course is intended for Devops engineers and developers looking to leverage micro-services architecture with container orchestration to build the scalable, robust applications.

If you are in need of docker training to understand containers see our Docker training course.
