Microsoft Future Ready: How To Run Containers In A DevOps Production Environment

Cloudswyft via FutureLearn



Learn how to run containers using Azure Container Service and Azure Service Fabric

Containers can run on your local machine but if you run them in production, it unlocks a powerful and consistent way of bringing software to production.

These production environment containers run on a set of machines managed by cluster orchestration. During this four-week course, you’ll learn how to create, deploy and configure your containerised applications on Microsoft Azure using Azure Container Service (ACS) and Azure Service Fabric (ASF).

Understand how to manage your container cluster with VSTS

This course will show you how to manage and operate your container cluster. You’ll learn how to configure the cluster and how to manage them so that you have constant insights into how your application is doing in production. With this knowledge, you’ll learn how you can scale up and down based on demand, and deploy containers without downtime, minimising disruption.

You will gain a solid understanding of continuous delivery infrastructure like Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) as you use it to deploy your containers in a cluster.

Delve into DevOps practices and how you can manage clusters and containers

By the end of the course, you will understand how a cluster works, how to set it up, and how you can manage your DevOps production environments, including proactive monitoring.

You will be able to carry out useful processes such as setting up a production cluster to host containers and deploy containerised applications to different orchestrators.

This course is part of DevOps with Microsoft Azure ExpertTrack where you’ll learn the core values and principles of DevOps and how to put these into practice.

This course is best suited for developers working in an organisation delivering software.

This will also suit IT pros who have some knowledge and experience working with cloud-based solutions and Microsoft Azure, and are looking to expand their skills.

The upgrade version of this course will include all the required CloudSwyft Hands-On Lab practice environments to be used by students and learners on this course, powered by CloudSwyft.

You will need a computer running Windows, Mac OSX or Linux, and a web browser.
