DO280 Red Hat OpenShift Administration II: Operating a Production Kubernetes Cluster

Classroom: 3 days
Virtual training: 4 days

Create, configure, manage, and troubleshoot OpenShift clusters
DO280 Red Hat OpenShift Administration II: Operating a Production Kubernetes Cluster teaches you how to install
and administer the Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform. This hands-on, lab-based course shows you how to install, configure, and manage OpenShift clusters and deploy sample applications to further understand how developers will use the platform.
This course is based on Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 8.0 and Openshift Container Platform 4.5.
OpenShift is a containerized application platform that allows enterprises to manage container deployments and scale their
applications using Kubernetes. OpenShift provides predefined application environments and builds upon Kubernetes to provide
support for DevOps principles such as reduced time to market, infrastructure-as-code, continuous integration (CI), and continuous delivery (CD).
