By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Undersand OCI (Open Containers Initiative) and its implications for using container enginees such as Docker in OpenShift.
  • Understand the relationship between the different versions of OpenShift (OKP, OpenShift Container Platform, Red Hat OpenShift, etc.).
  • Create, configure, manage, and troubleshoot an OpenShift Container Platform cluster.
  • Implement OpenShift Container Platform’s self-manage capabilities to improve platform stability and consistency.
  • Secure OpenShift Container Platform.
  • Monitor and gather metrics.
  • Manage storage.
  • Upgrade an OpenShift Container Platform 3 cluster to OpenShift Container Platform 4.
