Introduction to Containers, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift (DO180)

+ View more dates & times
  • Overview

    Introduction to Containers, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift (DO180) introduces building and managing Docker containers for deployment on a Kubernetes cluster. This course helps students build core knowledge and skills in managing containers through hands-on experience with Docker, Kubernetes, and Red Hat® OpenShift Container Platform.

    This course is based on Red Hat® OpenShift Container Platform 3.9 and Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 7.5.

    As a result of attending this class, students should be able to containerize simple software applications and services; deploy them with Docker, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift; test the containerized version; and troubleshoot issues with deployment.

    One of the key tenets of the DevOps movement is continuous integration and continuous deployment. Containers have become a key technology for the configuration and deployment of applications and microservices. Kubernetes is a container orchestration platform that provides foundational services in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

    Upon completing this course, students will be prepared to:

    • Understand container, Docker, and Red Hat OpenShift architecture.
    • Create containerized services.
    • Manage containers and container images.
    • Create custom container images.
    • Deploy containerized applications on Red Hat OpenShift.
    • Deploy multi-container applications.
  • Who Should Take This Course


    • Developers who wish to containerize software applications
    • Administrators who are new to container technology and container orchestration
    • Architects who are considering using container technologies in software architectures


    Students should:

    • Be able to use a Linux terminal session and issue operating system commands
    • Be a Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) or demonstrate equivalent experience
    • Have experience with web application architectures and their corresponding technologies
  • Why You Should Take This Course

    Impact on the organization

    This course is intended to develop the skills needed to create microservices architectures using OpenShift. Microservices are a new alternative to designing modern applications, focused on working with less hardware resources and, therefore, reducing infrastructure costs. OpenShift is a cloud solution that leverages the usage of microservices running on containers.

    While Red Hat has created this course in a way intended to benefit our customers, each company and infrastructure is unique, and actual benefits may vary.

    Impact on the individual

    As a result of attending this course, you should be able to perform these basic tasks in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform:

    • Create containerized services using Docker.
    • Manage containers and container images.
    • Create custom container images.
    • Deploy containerized applications on OpenShift.
    • Deploy multi-container applications.
  • Schedule
