We’ll introduce several core controller types and look at the fundamentals of using the Deployment Controller to deploy applications and take a deep dive into the Controller operations of ReplicaSets.
  • Maintaining Applications with Deployments – In this demo-heavy module, we look closer at Deployments and learn how we can maintain our container based applications. We look at updating Deployments, controlling rollouts and using updateStrategy and readinessProbes to ensure successful rollouts. We’ll also cover what to do when things go wrong and learn how to pause and rollback rollouts.
  • Deploying and Maintaining Applications with DaemonSets and Jobs – In this module, we introduce the DaemonSet controller and how it’s used to deploy applications to all Nodes or a subset of Nodes in our cluster, we’ll also cover DaemonSet operations such as updating and controlling rollouts. We wrap up the course with a look at how we can use Jobs and CronJobs to ensure work completes in our cluster.
