About the course
Learn to run, deploy, and manage a Kubernetes cluster on AWS
Kubernetes is conceivably the most important container management technology in the world. This course will teach you the practical skills required to get you up and running as fast as possible.
In this course, you'll jump into Kubernetes architecture, and grasp what the main components and services are, and how they come together to build a production-class container infrastructure. Next, you'll learn how to install and deploy Kubernetes on several cloud platforms. Finally, we’ll explore more advanced topics on Kubernetes, including Continuous Integration, High Availability, and Disaster recovery using Kubernetes.
By the end of the course, you’ll have gained plenty of hands-on experience with Kubernetes on Amazon Web Services. You’ll also have picked up some tips on deploying and managing applications, keeping your cluster and applications secure, and ensuring that your whole system is reliable and resilient to failure.

Alan Rodrigues has been working on software components such as Docker containers and Kubernetes for the last 2 years. He has extensive experience working on the AWS Platform, currently being certified as an AWS Solution Architect Associate, a SysOps Administrator and a Developer Associate.
Alan has seen organizations moving towards using containers as part of their microservices architecture. And there is a strong need to have a container orchestration tool in place. Kubernetes is by far the most popular container orchestration being adopted.
