Are your Cloud-ready?
Cloud-native applications built on microservice architecture and running at web scale are the new status quo for SaaS providers or most any startup worth its salt. Along with the desire to build the next unicorn or just capture a competitive edge in an existing market comes the need for talent that can build and manage the systems to run the needed applications. Could this be your next challenge? We provide professional grade instructor-led and online Kubernetes training.
Wait. Why do I need this Kubernetes thing anyway?
Kubernetes has become the software of choice for running Docker-based apps in the Cloud at a massive, distributed scale. With any new technology, there is always an initial “skills gap” – demand being greater than the talent pool. A search on Indeed.com, listed over 1500 jobs where Kubernetes was a requirement or desirable skill with a pay range between $95,000 and $130,000. Kubernetes is absolutely one of those cases and if you are looking to develop your career in the direction of the cutting edge of IT, this is a space to become familiar with.
While Docker Containers are the container format of choice for most developers, Kubernetes has become the community’s dominant choice for managing those containers at scale. Developed by Google based on their Borg orchestration engine and then open sourced, it has become on of the fastest growing projects on Github. It is designed to work across public, private or hybrid clouds and is equally performant on virtualized servers or bare metal. Kubernetes leverages Docker’s container format and runtime (and has added beta support for the CoreOS rkt format) and focuses on container scheduling and management at web scale. If you are new to Kubernetes, our 5MoC video episode will give you a 5 minute intro to the technology and touches on its abilities for scheduling, DNS, load balancing, service discovery, autoscaling and much more.
Learn smart – self paced, online kubernetes training
Recognizing the growing demand for trained professionals and not seeing the necessary learning opportunities, Kumulus Technologies has developed, tested and released a series of online kubernetes training that gets technologists not just familiar, but comfortable and competent working with this new technology.
These are on-demand, self-paced courses that are focused on providing high-value learning environments for students. On-demand video lectures and vendor agnostic labs (that are deployable on a student’s laptop or any other compute model of choice) are designed to give students the ability to learn in an environment that makes the most sense for their needs and goals. Lifetime access to content for review and live instructor office hours further provide learners with the resources they need to succeed.
