Docker is the new platform for developing and hosting modern applications. In this course, Docker Networking, you will learn everything you need to know about deploying and managing Docker networks. First, you'll learn about the Container Network Model (CNM) and Libnetwork, which are the foundation of all Docker networks. Next, you will delve into building and managing single-host and multi-host networks. Finally, you will learn how to build container networks that integrate with existing VLANs and application networks. When you are finished with this course, you'll have the skills and knowledge needed to start deploying and managing Docker networks within your organization.
Course Overview Docker and containers, man I mean I can't think of anything else out there that is hotter than these at the moment. So whether you're an IT pro or a developer with a pressing need to get up to speed with Docker networking or maybe you're just curious and want to get ahead of the game. Either way you have come to the right place. My name's Nigel Poulton and I've been living it large in the container world since the early days. And before that, I was a hands on traditional infrastructure guy, so a bit of Linux, a bit of networking, and way too much storage. And along the way I managed infrastructure teams and some of the most dynamic and high pressure environments out there. And I cannot wait to deliver this course to you. Now it's going to be high paced with a lot squashed into the timeframe, we'll be covering the fundamentals of what makes a container network, including pivotal technologies like the container network model and the LIB network. But we'll also get into a bunch of real world requirements and use cases, things like scalable overlay networks, and how to add containers to existing networks and VLANs. And along the way we'll cover some of the network servicy stuff that makes deploying applications on Docker simple and easy. By the end of the course look you're not going to be an expert after a two-hour course, but I am telling you this, you will be skilled up and in possession of the right tools to take things further. And I dare say you'll be plenty confident enough to start building and managing your own container networks. And on that note, let's get started.
