Container Orchestration Tools

Welcome to Container Orchestration Tools, an Online Training (OLT) micro-course. You will learn that automation harnesses the computational power of computers to execute routine tasks swiftly and accurately, eliminating human errors. In real-time scenarios, automated processes can identify and rectify issues faster than human intervention. Orchestration, a critical component, not only triggers automated tasks but also aggregates data from these tasks. It collaboratively presents relevant information to human operators. In the context of DevSecOps, orchestration plays a pivotal role in managing environments. For instance: Microservices are independent software applications that focus on a single function or service. Containers housing microservices can be dynamically initiated or terminated to scale systems (Memory allocation is scaled). Orchestration ensures security, seamless updates, and load balancing without disrupting services. This micro course is in support of the DevSecOps series of credentials.
