Look inside

The success of BuildYourHome, an e-commerce company, is soaring, but so is the cost of managing its newly containerized system. As a DevOps engineer, you’ll solve this problem by setting up Kubernetes, a widely used container orchestration system, to run the e-commerce application’s Docker containers. You’ll create a pod for deployment, build a deployment manifest file to provide important instructions to Kubernetes, provide customer access to the application, and take steps to manage CPU and memory resources for your application pods, improving cost and efficiency. When you’re finished, you’ll have valuable hands-on experience deploying applications on Kubernetes that will help prepare you for a career in DevOps.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
