During this two-day course, you focus on using VMware Tanzu® Mission Control™ to provision and manage Kubernetes clusters. The course covers how to apply access, image registry, network, security, quota, and custom policies to Kubernetes environments. For cluster provisioning and management, the course focuses on deploying, upgrading, backing up, and monitoring Kubernetes clusters on VMware vSphere® with VMware Tanzu® and also covers package management using the VMware Tanzu Mission Control catalog.
By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:
Describe the Tanzu Mission Control architecture
Configure user and group access
Create access, image registry, network, security, quota, and custom policies
Connect your on-premises vSphere with Tanzu Supervisor cluster to VMware Tanzu Mission Control
Create, manage, and back up Tanzu Kubernetes clusters
Perform cluster inspections
Manage packages in your clusters
Monitor and secure Kubernetes environments
Who Can Benefit
Operators and application owners who are responsible for deploying and managing policies for multiple Kubernetes clusters across on-premises and public cloud environments.
Experience deploying and managing multiple Kubernetes clusters
Experience with Kubernetes RBAC, network policies, resource quotas, and Pod Security Policies
The provisioning lesson in the course relies on VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid™, so the attending one of the following courses is recommended: VMware vSphere with Tanzu: Deploy and Manage [V7] or VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid: Install, Configure, Manage [V1.3]
