How will Docker Certified Associate Training help your career?

Docker revolutionized the IT industry with the introduction of its Portable Lightweight Container Engine. More than 30% of the organizations in the IT industry have already adopted Docker, and the adoption rate is increasing by 40% every year. Docker has almost single-handedly eliminated the need for anybody to say “It worked on my machine!” by offering parity across environments. If it works in Development, it will work in Production as well. The simplicity by which Docker deploys and manages containerized applications is unparalleled. Considering that over 80% of the containerized industry uses Docker as their main container platform, it should be enough for anyone to dig their hands in this technology.

Which project will be a part of this Docker Certified Associate Training?

Arkane Pvt Limited is using Cloud for one of their products. The project is in its initial stages, and the organization is ready with its frontend. However, it is taking about 4 hours of effort to push each update to its production environment, which is an obstacle for the release of the product. To resolve this issue, the team has decided to containerize their application to ease the deployment process.
Tools Used:

  • Docker – For containerizing the application
  • Swarm – To deploy the containerized application on the cluster of servers
  • Kubernetes – An alternative to Docker swarm


  • Containerize the Application
  • If Persistent Storage is required for the application, connect appropriate storage solution
  • Create a Swarm cluster and deploy the application on the cluster with an appropriate networking solution
  • Deploy the application on a Kubernetes cluster
  • Application in Docker swarm should be available outside the cluster
  • Application in Kubernetes should be available within the cluster
