Editor’s note: On February 26th, 2019, VMware renamed VMware PKS to VMware Enterprise PKS. To learn more about the change, read here.

Kubernetes is an open source cluster and container management tool originally developed by Google to orchestrate software in containers. The system gives developers a single method for deploying, scaling and managing containers on a variety of cloud services and virtual machines. Container orchestration helps developers keep track of all of their containers, spin up more containers automatically when more memory, CPUs or storage is needed and shut down containers gracefully when the load lightens.

With more than 35 certified products achieving Kubernetes conformance, all signs are pointing to Kubernetes being the leading standard for container orchestration.

In this webcast series, viewers will learn the fundamentals of Kubernetes, understand when to use it and why, hear about the challenges around operationalizing it and discover what a Kubernetes-based container service, such as VMware Pivotal Container Service (VMWPKS), can do for application deployment and lifecycle management.

The webcast demonstrates how to operationalize Kubernetes with three demos based around the following real-world scenarios:

  • Recovering from a failed node
  • Implementing security policies and microsegmentation
  • Monitoring Kubernetes clusters

To register for the webcast series, visit the VMware Pivotal Container Service Webcast Portal. After registering for one of the webcasts, access to all of the webcasts in the series will instantly become available.
