Fundamentals of Docker Containers for Microservice Applications

Containers provide functional consistency to applications that assure that containerized applications can be developed, tested, and deployed on very different infrastructures, and still reliably work. Linux containers have become a necessary technology in for application developers working with microservice-based applications and infrastructure operations that increasingly treat infrastructure as code. Docker started this current container renaissance by providing a simple way to build, manage and deploy containers and it remains the leading modern container solution. This course will provide you with a functional knowledge of how to containerize an application using Docker and use your Docker image to run and scale a microservice-based application.

The course will cover how Linux containers differ from bare metal and virtual servers, appropriate use cases for containers, and an orientation to the Docker ecosystem. Most importantly, you’ll get tactical experience with the simplicity and speed that Docker brings to application deployment as you containerize, deploy and scale a microservice-based application in the hands-on labs.

You will gain a practical, experience-based understanding of Docker in particular and containers in general. At the end of the course, you will be comfortable containerizing and running a Dockerized microservice application.

This course is appropriate for Application Developers, Infrastructure Operators, Project Managers, Pre-Sales / Sales Engineers, and Development Managers.

VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [v6.0]

VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage features intensive hands-on training that focuses on installing, configuring, and managing VMware vSphere® 6, which includes VMware ESXi™ 6 and VMware vCenter Server™ 6. This course prepares you to administer a vSphere infrastructure for an organization of any size and forms the foundation for most other VMware technologies in the software-defined data center.
This course is beneficial to system administrators and systems engineers and meets the prerequisite for advanced vSphere courses, which can be found at:
• Describe the software-defined data center
• Deploy an ESXi host and create virtual machines
• Describe vCenter Server architecture, deploy an instance or VMware vCenter Server™ Appliance™, and use vCenter Server to manage an ESXi host
• Configure and manage vSphere infrastructure with VMware vSphere® Client™ and VMware vSphere® Web Client
• Configure virtual networks with vSphere standard switches
• Use vCenter Server to manage various types of host storage: VMware vSphere® VMFS, NFS, virtual SAN, and Virtual Volumes
• Manage virtual machines, templates, clones, and snapshots
• Create a vApp
• Migrate virtual machines with VMware vSphere® vMotion®
• Use VMware vSphere® Storage vMotion® to migrate virtual machine storage
• Monitor resource usage and manage resource pools
• Use VMware vRealize™ Operations Manager™ to identify and solve issues through analytics and alerts
• Manage VMware vSphere® High Availability and VMware vSphere® Fault Tolerance
• Use VMware vSphere® Replication™ and VMware vSphere® Data Protection™ to replicate virtual machines and perform data recovery
• Use VMware vSphere® Distributed Resource Scheduler™ clusters to improve host scalability and use vSphere distributed switches to improve network scalability
• Use VMware vSphere® Update Manager™ to apply patches and perform basic troubleshooting of ESXi hosts, virtual machines, and vCenter Server operations
