Course description
  • Scalable Microservices with Kubernetes
  • 1 months
  • Master infrastructure management
  • Mastering highly resilient and scalable infrastructure management is very important, because the modern expectation is that your favorite sites will be up 24/7, and that they will roll out new features frequently and without disruption of the service. Achieving this requires tools that allow you to ensure speed of development, infrastructure stability and ability to scale. Students with backgrounds in Operations or Development who are interested in managing container based infrastructure with Kubernetes are recommended to enroll!
  • In this course you will learn to:
  • Introduction to Microservices
  • Building the Containers with Docker
  • Kubernetes
  • Deploying Microservices
  • Learn how 12-factor apps and the microservices design pattern make modern applications easier to deploy and maintain.
  • Use Docker to build container images that package an application and its dependencies for deployment on a single machine.
  • The infrastructure to support an application at scale is as important as the application itself.
  • See how Kubernetes allows you to focus on the big picture.
  • Go beyond the theoretical concepts and try out Kubernetes so that you can use it to manage real world apps.
  • Prior to taking this course you should possess the following experience and skills:
  • See the Technology Requirements for using Udacity.
  • If you’re currently involved in infrastructure management — as a sysadmin or a developer — this course will enable you to build on that experience, and master the most cutting edge tools and practices in automation and distributed system management. For students who might be new to the field, this course is an excellent opportunity to familiarize yourself with microservices, containers, Docker, Kubernetes and deployment patterns; you’ll even run your first application on your very own Kubernetes cluster in the cloud!
