Red Hat’s OpenShift is a collection of containerization software. The Platform as a Service (PaaS) OpenShift® Container Platform is based on the Docker containers. It is designed and managed on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux foundation by Kubernetes.

Cognixia’s Containers, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift Administration I course will help learners enhance their core skills and impart the knowledge required to manage containers by providing them with practical experience of working with platforms such as Kubernetes, Docker and the Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform.

The course introduces participants to Docker, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift Platform, helping them understand the DevOps culture as well as continuous integration and continuous deployment. During this course, participants will also develop core administration skills such installing, configuring, and managing an OpenShift cluster, along with acquiring a deeper knowledge of the tools used.
