Training Tuesday Edition - 19

In this week’s Training Tuesday blog, we present a set of free, short videos and tutorials on Oracle Linux Cloud Native Environment. This training helps facilitate your usage of the technologies, software and tools used by Oracle to develop and manage cloud-native applications.

In this blog, you will find links to training materials covering the following:

  • Orchestration and Deployment
  • Container Runtime
  • Microservices Traffic Management
  • Management Operations
  • Monitoring

There is also a short quiz that you can take at the end of each learning path to test your knowledge and reinforce your learning experience.

The following set of videos introduces you to Oracle Linux Cloud Native Environment and provides demonstrations on how to deploy and how to scale, or add nodes, to your environment.

This set of videos introduces you to Kubernetes, an open-source system for automating the deployment, scaling and management of containerized applications, and the core module for Oracle Linux Cloud Native Environment.

These videos introduce you to Kata Containers. The default container runtime for Oracle Linux Cloud Native Environment is runC but Kata Containers are an optional lightweight virtual machine (VM) runtime that provides the framework for creating lightweight VMs that easily plug into container ecosystems.

The next set of videos introduces you to the Istio module in Oracle Linux Cloud Native Environment. Istio provides microservices traffic management and coordinates communication between services. Istio also provides service discovery, load balancing, security, recovery, telemetry, and policy enforcement capabilities.

The following tutorials provide procedural instructions that offer guidance for setting up and using Oracle Linux Cloud Native Environment.

The remaining videos cover technology previews of microservices components in Oracle Linux Cloud Native Environment. These technologies and not supported by Oracle and intended for use in pre-production systems only:

  • Helm
  • Prometheus
  • Grafana

Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes, Helm manages the creation of complex, multi-container applications and web services in Kubernetes clusters.

Prometheus is an open source monitoring and alerting system. Prometheus uses log collectors for monitoring and performance tuning. Prometheus can gather logs from various metrics and present the data in the form of basic graphs for analysis.

Grafana is an open source analysis and visualization tool for time series data. Grafana allows data capture across different sources and visualized on dashboards.

Videos and tutorials are updated and new videos are added on an ongoing basis so check back often.

In next week's Training Tuesday blog, we introduce a set of videos on Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Administration for the Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager.
