Course Description

OpenShift Container Platform Administration is a hands-on, lab-based course that teaches system administrators how to install, configure and manages Openshift Container Platform instances. The OpenShift Container Platform is Red Hat’s Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering, which provides predefined deployment environments for applications of all types through its use  of container technology. This enables an environment that supports DevOps principles such as reduced time to market, infrastructure as code, continuous integration (CI), and continuous delivery (CD).

Participants will learn how to install and configure an OpenShift Container Platform cluster consisting of a master and nodes, test the instance by deploying  real world application, and manage projects and applications through hands-on labs.
