DOCKER Training

Docker is a new open source container technology being adopted by companies at an amazing rate. Containers are changing the way companies think about service development and deployment. Containers play a vital role in the modern data-center, and Docker is leading the way.
This course covers all the core features of Docker. The target audience for this 2-day class is developers, systems administrators, systems architects, and anyone else needing a deep-dive into the go-to Linux container technology.
Check our schedule as a number of classes are available for the rest of 2015. All 2015 scheduled Docker classes are guaranteed to run. Enroll your clients into a GL340 class this year with confidence.
Guru Labs instructors, courseware, and RLabs (remote labs) are also available as resources for our partners who would like to host a Docker class.

Description

Linux containers are changing the way companies think about service development and deployment. Containers play a vital role in the modern data-center, and Docker is leading the way. This course covers all the core features of Docker including: container creation and management, interacting with Docker hub, using Dockerfile to create and manage custom images, advanced Docker networking (how to safely expose container services to the world, and link containers), the use of Docker volumes to manage persistent data, and Docker Compose to build multi-container applications. Emphasis is placed on best practices and how to secure Docker installations and containers. Course culminates with comprehensive labs where students use Docker, Git, and a continuous integration server to automate the testing of containerized applications.
