Description

Kubernetes has emerged as the leader in the container orchestration and management platforms. However, this begs a question: Who will manage your Kubernetes Infrastructure? In this course, Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) – The Big Picture, you will learn the skills to deploy a managed Kubernetes platform on Microsoft Azure without worrying about the underlying computer and management overhead. First, you will learn the fundamentals of Docker and Kubernetes and see how it applies to a Microservices Architecture. Next, you will discover how to deploy an application to a local Kubernetes Cluster and see how that experience translates to deploying the same application to Azure Kubernetes Service without any change to the deployment experience. Finally, you will see how easy it is to scale your application workloads in AKS, which will help you take your AKS skills to the next level and help you modernize and re-platform your application workloads on Microsoft Azure. By the end of this course, you will have a foundational knowledge of Azure Kubernetes Service that will help you deploy containerized workloads on Azure with minimal management overhead.

Start Course
Description

Azure Kubernetes Services are a platform-as-a-service offering that provide you a Kubernetes service in the Azure cloud. They come with support for both Linux and Windows Workloads and are highly scalable – both automated and manually, and both for compute resources and for pods. This is how they provide you the required flexibility to always run on a system that has the perfect size for your workloads. In this course, Deploying and Managing Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) Clusters, you’ll learn how to deploy and operate your own AKS cluster. First, you’ll explore what the core concepts of AKS are and what to consider when designing an AKS cluster. Next, you’ll discover what it takes to build and manage a Kubernetes cluster using AKS. Finally, you’ll learn how to operate an AKS cluster. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of Deploying and Managing Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) Clusters needed to build and operate a Kubernetes Cluster in AKS.

Start Course
Description

Applications in Azure Kubernetes Services can be deployed with a multitude of options, like container images coming from your own container registry, pods using different kinds of storage types, and securables being stored in external vaults rather than being part of your Kubernetes Cluster or your application itself. In this course, Deploying Applications in Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), you’ll learn to deploy workloads in AKS. First, you’ll explore how to build and integrate container images in AKS with the Azure Container Registry. Next, you’ll discover how to configure storage for your applications in Azure Kubernetes Services. Finally, you’ll learn how to secure your application deployments using Azure Key Vault. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge about Azure Kubernetes Service to build and deploy workloads in AKS.
