Why study this course

This course prepares OpenShift cluster administrators to manage Kubernetes workloads and to collaborate with developers, DevOps engineers, system administrators, and SREs to ensure the availability of application workloads. This course focuses on managing typical end-user applications that are often accessible from a web or mobile UI and that represent most cloud-native and containerised workloads. Managing applications also includes deploying and updating their dependencies, such as databases, messaging, and authentication systems.

The skills that you learn in this course apply to all versions of OpenShift, including Red Hat OpenShift on AWS (ROSA), Azure Red Hat OpenShift, and OpenShift Container Platform.

This course is based on Red Hat OpenShift 4.12.
