  1. Challenge

    Configure the App's Containers to Be Stateless

    Make the container file system for the app's containers read-only.

    The application needs to be able to write to /tmp. You will need to create an external volume to allow the application to write to this directory at runtime.

    You can find a deployment descriptor for the app at /home/cloud_user/pirate-day.yml.

  2. Challenge

    Scale the Application Up

    Increase the number of replicas for the application to 5.
