Course Description

Containerization technologies are playing a big role in a modern software development. With the help of containers one can pack their code with required dependencies/lib to make an application to run anywhere. It enables IT organizations to become more agile and scalable.

In this course, you will learn about different containerization technologies like:

  1. Docker

  2. Kubernetes

  3. AWS ECR (Elastic Container Registry)

  4. AWS ECS (Elastic Container Services) on EC2 (Elastic Cloud Compute)

  5. AWS Fargate (Serverless ECS)

  6. AWS EKS ( Elastic Kubernetes Services)

  • What is Docker ? 

    Docker is an open source platform for building, deploying, and managing containerized applications in mission to solve the 'it works on my machine' headache. 

  • What is Kubernetes?

    Kubernetes, also known as K8s, is an open-source container orchestration tool for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.

  • What is AWS ECR?

    Amazon Elastic Container Registry is a managed container image registry service just like docker hub or Red hat quay to store docker images.

  • What is AWS ECS?

    Amazon Elastic Container Services is a fully managed container orchestration service that makes it easy for you to deploy, manage, and scale containerized applications.

  • What is AWS Fargate?

    AWS Fargate enable to use Amazon ECS for running containers without managing servers or clusters of Amazon EC2 instances.

  • What is AWS EKS?

    Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service is a managed Kubernetes (container orchestration) service that makes it easy for you to run Kubernetes on AWS. 


What will you learn in this course:

  • Learn the fundamental concepts of containerization technologies like docker and kubernetes
  • Learn to use Docker images
  • Learn the concepts and create custom Dockerfile
  • Learn to create public and private Elastic Container Registry
  • Learn how to provision and manage container on AWS cloud with Elastic Container Services, Elastic Kubernetes Services and AWS Fargate
