Docker and Kubernetes Bootcamp


Kubernetes is an open-source orchestration system for automating management, placement, scaling and routing of containers. It provides an API to control how and where the containers would run. Docker is also an open-source container-file format for automating the deployment of applications as portable, self-sufficient containers that can run in the cloud or on-premises. Together, Kubernetes and Docker have become hugely popular among developers, especially in the DevOps world.

Both Docker and Kubernetes are huge open-source technologies, largely written in the Go programming language, that use human-readable YAML files to specify application stacks and their deployment.

Cognixia brings to you a unique bootcamp covering basic to advanced-level concepts of Docker and Kubernetes. The bootcamp offers an engaging and immersive learning experience for participants where they can take advantage of connecting with an industry expert trainer, develop their competencies to meet industry and organizational standards, as well as learn about real-world best practices.

Course Description

Docker is a set of PaaS products that deliver software in containers using OS-level virtualization. It is an open-source project that is based on Linux containers. Simply put, it is a container engine that utilizes different Linux Kernel features, such as, namespaces and control groups, in order to create containers.

Kubernetes or K8S is a vendor-agnostic cluster and container management tool. It is a portable, extensible, and most importantly, an open-source platform. Originally created by Google, Kubernetes is the world’s most widely used platform for automating deployments, scaling and managing application containers across different clusters of hosts. Simply put, Kubernetes help maximize the utilization of available computing infrastructure on the cloud.

While businesses everywhere are migrating to the cloud, enabler technologies are seeing a huge leap in innovation as well as adoption. Together, Docker and Kubernetes are shaping the future of business architecture. There is an extremely huge demand for Docker and Kubernetes around the globe, and organizations everywhere are embracing these two major platforms for containers and microservices whole-heartedly.

Cognixia’s Docker and Kubernetes training and certification course covers the fundamentals of Docker as well as Kubernetes, how to run Kubernetes instances on Minikube, how to create and work with Kubernetes clusters, how to work with different resources, how to create and modify the workloads, how to work with the Kubernetes API as well as key metadata, how to work with specialized workloads, how to scale deployments and application security, and an in-depth discussion on the container ecosystem.
