Course Description

What Is Docker and Kubernetes Corporate Training All About?

Containerization allows developers to access software code along with the operating system libraries and the related configuration files to run the code easily, thus creating and deploying applications effortlessly and swiftly. Selected tools are used in the cloud-native container ecosystem: the most popular ones being Docker and Kubernetes.

The tools are often employed together, but to accomplish different tasks. In simple terms, Docker helps build containers while Kubernetes helps manage and orchestrate them.

Our 40-hour Docker and Kubernetes certification training sheds light on the concepts of virtualization and containerization and demonstrates how applications are deployed and managed across a cluster of servers.
