OpenShift Administration DO180 + DO280

Course Overview

Linux2Cloud’s Introduction to Containers, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift (DO180) helps you build core knowledge in managing containers through hands-on experience with containers, Kubernetes, and the Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform. These skills are needed for multiple roles, including developers, administrators, and site reliability engineers. 

Linux2Cloud’s Openshift training provides a detailed understanding of the Openshift environment, how to install and administer the OpenShift Container Platform. This hands-on, lab-based course shows you how to install, configure, and manage OpenShift clusters and deploy sample applications to further understand how developers will use the platform.
