Kubernetes Administration (LFS458)
About the course:
The course is designed to cover the main topics and concepts which are applied when developing and administering a Kubernetes cluster in production via vendor independent tools. You will learn how to develop a cluster, grow the cluster, determine network configuration, implement the applications, security and storage configuration along with other objects essential for use. The student will be exposed to a multitude of skills through this course which are extremely important for administering Kubernetes in a production environment and will help in preparing for the Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) exam.
Through this course, students will learn about the process of installing as well as configuring a production-grade Kubernetes cluster. From configuring the network to making implementations, to upgrading the system via services, you will learn to do everything. In addition, you will also learn how to handle the ongoing tasks which are necessary for Kubernetes administration. Once you complete this course, you will be able to:
Install a multi-node Kubernetes cluster via kubeadm
Understand the process of growing a cluster
Choose and deploy cluster networking
Understand different types of application lifecycle management such as updates, scaling, and roll backs.

Manage container storage
Understand the process of logging, monitoring, as well as troubleshooting clusters and containers.
Configure affinity and scheduling of container implementation
