Migrating from monolith to stable microservices architectures require robust, scalable, and containerized deployment and orchestration capabilities. In this course, you'll explore the challenges of transforming from monolith applications to microservices, the benefits of microservices and container orchestration, and various container orchestration deployment options for managing containerized deployments. You'll investigate the evolution, key features, and components of Kubernetes, identifying the pros and cons of the recommended installation and configuration options for Kubernetes and establishing the key criteria for evaluating Kubernetes solutions for enterprise workloads, including using Pods to manage multiple containers. Additionally, you'll install "all-in-one" Kubernetes using containers to run Kubernetes components as Docker containers on a single host. You'll use kubectl to run applications on Kubernetes clusters. Lastly, you'll create a service that targets TCP port 80 on any Pod and expose this service onto an external IP address.
