  • Improve their odds of succeeding at the CNCF Certified Kubernetes Administrator test
  • Build and administer Kubernetes clusters - on-premise, as well as on all major cloud platforms (AWS, Azure, GCP)
  • Understand and employ advanced deployment solutions using Kubernetes
  • Master the important aspects of Kubernetes - pods, replicasets, deployments and services
English [Auto] Let's start by trying to understand why Coburn is so hot so popular these days. The simple answer is that all computing has become very very important these days. The rise in popularity of computing has made and emos and containerization of compute very very important and a direct consequence of these two trends is the popularity of quantities. Let's take a moment to understand why the rise of cloud computing is linked to an innovation and quantities most cloud computing platform such as either of us from Amazon agile from Microsoft or the GCP from Googie offer a range of compute and storage solutions compute in this context refers to very. Our application is actually going to run whether Gore is going to be hosted and reside these cloud providers to offer compute solutions along a spectrum at one end of the spectrum is something known as infra as a service. At the other end is a platform as a service the infra as a service typically involves virtual machines running on the cloud. These are called Cloud instances. And on these cloud instances users of the cloud can deploy their apps at the other extreme the platform as a soulless allows users to deploy apps without having to worry about dev ops. You pretty much just write your code and run it on the cloud. It turns out that both of the extremes of the spectrum would be in for as a service and the platform as a service have some pretty significant limitations at the infra as a service and the user of the cloud is often who downunder. Even the details that the actual administration of cloud instances and virtual machines. It's also quite Tipene to migrate such in as a service component from on prem to the cloud that is from a local datacenter which is owned by a company with public cloud or from one provider to another these issues do not entirely go away and we switch to the platform as a service the offerings of the major cloud providers tend to require pretty much locked in. But that particular cloud if you are using Google's App Engine For instance you want to make use of a whole lot of GCP specifically pieces and you will pretty much find yourself tied down to the GCP and the same is likely to be the case if you're using Amazon's elastic install another down side of the platform as a service. Is that as an application developer you tend to have less control or the nitty gritty or the details the platform is quite restrictive. This in turn gets us to the importance of containers containers are something of a media bot which we could discuss in a moment and it turns out that in order to run large clusters of containers on the Cloud who Bernet this is exactly what we require. And this in a nutshell is why quantities and containers are all the rage in the world of compute and computing these days.
