Who Should Attend?

  • Developers wishing to containerize software applications
  • Administrators new to container technology and container orchestration
  • Architects considering using container technologies in software architectures

What You'll Learn

In this course, you will learn how to containerize simple software applications and services, deploy them with Docker, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift, test the containerized version, and troubleshoot issues with deployment.

One of the key tenets of the DevOps movement is continuous integration and continuous deployment. Containers have become a key technology for the configuration and deployment of applications and microservices. Kubernetes is a container orchestration platform that provides foundational services in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

Topics include:

  • Container, Docker, and Red Hat OpenShift architecture
  • Create containerized services
  • Manage containers and container Images
  • Create custom container images
  • Deploy containerized applications on Red Hat OpenShift
  • Deploy multi-container applications

Course Outline

Course Introduction

  • Introduce and review the course.

Get Started with Container Technology

  • Describe how software can run in containers orchestrated by Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

Create Containerized Services

  • Provision a server using container technology.

Manage Containers

  • Manipulate pre-build container images to create and manage containerized services.

Manage Container Images

  • Manage the life cycle of a container image from creation to deletion.

Create Custom Container Images

  • Design and code a Docker file to build a custom container image.

Deploy Containerized Applications on Red Hat OpenShift

  • Deploy single container applications on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

Deploy Multi-Container Applications

  • Deploy applications that are containerized using multiple container images.

Troubleshoot Containerized Applications

  • Troubleshoot a containerized application deployed on Red Hat OpenShift.

Comprehensive Review of Introduction to Container, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift

  • Demonstrate how to containerize a software application, test it with Docker, and deploy it on a Red Hat OpenShift cluster.

Note: The course outline is subject to change as technology advances and the nature of the underlying job evolves. For questions or confirmation on a specific objective or topic, contact your training advisor or call 1-800-COURSES.

Follow-On Courses

Impact on the organization:

This course is intended to develop the skills needed to create microservices architectures using OpenShift. Microservices are a new alternative to designing modern applications, focused on working with less hardware resources and, therefore, reducing infrastructure costs. OpenShift is a cloud solution that leverages the usage of microservices running on containers.

While Red Hat has created this course in a way intended to benefit our customers, each company and infrastructure is unique, and actual benefits may vary.

Impact on the individual:
As a result of attending this course, you should be able to perform these basic tasks in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform:

  • Create containerized services using Docker.
  • Manage containers and container images.
  • Create custom container images.
  • Deploy containerized applications on OpenShift.
  • Deploy multi-container applications.


Development Track
OpenShift Enterprise Development (DO288)

  • Design, build, and deploy containerized applications on an OpenShift cluster.

Administration Track
Red Hat OpenShift Administration I (DO280)

  • Learn to install and configure an instance of Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, test the instance by deploying a real world application, and manage projects/applications through hands-on labs.
