Frequently Asked Questions

The Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) certification certifies that an engineer can design, build, configure, and expose cloud-native applications for Kubernetes. CKAD certificate can help you land a new role and will help you get into DevOps.
Kubernetes expertise is in high-demand for modern operational roles like DevOps and Site Reliability Engineering (SRE).
The shorthand K8s is derived from tallying the letters of Kubernetes between the “K” and “s.”
Live in-class sessions will be held through zoom.

In Clarusway, we have a comprehensive approach for students to learn smoothly. We have a proprietary LMS (Learning Management System) – it’s a user-friendly, all-in-one online platform. We designed our LMS to allow students to start learning before class with helpful pre-class activities. We then reinforce learning after class through post-class assignments. Students can also watch the recordings of in-class sessions whenever you want. It’s a great reinforcement tool!

You will have access to LMS content for up to three months after the course ends. You can ask questions to instructors during in-class sessions on through our dedicated Slack channel. Similarly, there is a dedicated Q&A channel where you can send your questions 24/7 to be answered as soon as possible.

We provide various payment options like:

  • Full/Up-front discount
  • Installment payment option (different maturity options)

The Kubernetes Course prepares you to be a Kubernetes professional who manages the orchestration of multiple containers from within a DevOps team.
In this role, you can work in a company that uses a DevOps model (or plans to adopt DevOps) and uses Kubernetes on the premises or in any cloud system. You may also have a job in AWS as a member of an AWS engineering team that builds a primary set of services to support the cloud customers in running and operating Kubernetes at scale on AWS.

You should be familiar with containerization technologies such as Docker. You should know the basics of Linux and YAML data serialization language.
To guarantee no interruptions, you must handle the containers that operate the apps in a production environment. For instance, when one container fails, another must be started. Kubernetes gives a platform for operating robust distributed systems. It handles your application’s scaling and recovery. Kubernetes does:
  • Service discovery and load balancing
  • Storage orchestration
  • Automated rollouts and rollbacks
  • Automatic bin packing
  • Self-healing
  • Secret and configuration management
Docker is a set of software development tools for generating, distributing, and running individual containers; Kubernetes is a method for scaling containerized systems.

If you get started with the basics and simply move on step-by-step, yes – we make it easy to learn through our Learning Management System (LMS). The many moving parts and new architecture might make Kubernetes fairly difficult to learn at first but we coach our students through the process.

Kubernetes is written in the Go programming language by Google.

Downloading Kubernetes from the official website is free. Payment usually begins with the release of the Kubernetes to a system/cluster or the cloud systems such as AWS, Google Cloud Platform, and Azure. Some cloud systems give credits away for a period from the account creation.

Kubernetes is a framework for operating distributed systems in a resilient way.

The Kubernetes command-line tool (kubectl) can be used with any version of kube-apiserver that is at least one minor version older than the current one. (All versions are available on the official site). 
As an example, for kube-apiserver is at 1.23, kubectl is supported at 1.24, 1.23, and 1.22

A container orchestrator like Kubernetes runs on top of platforms like Docker, which acts as a container platform.
kubectl Command-line tool
kind To run Kubernetes on your local computer. (Requires installed Docker)
minikube To run Kubernetes locally
kubeadm To create and manage Kubernetes clusters
crictl CLI for inspecting and debugging CRI-compatible container runtimes.
Dashboard Kubernetes’ web-based user interface.
Helm To manage pre-configured Kubernetes resources packages.
Kompose To help Docker Compose users move to Kubernetes.
Kui Graphical user interface (GUI) tool that accepts your standart kubectl command line requests and responds with graphics.
Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) It is a service of Amazon Web Services (AWS)
RedHat OpenShift It is an open-source container application platform (PaaS).
Docker Swarm It is a container orchestration that is composed of managers and workers.
Nomad It is for deploying and managing containerized or traditional application workloads.
AWS Fargate The standard version of Kubernetes does not enable serverless computing; however the Amazon Fargate does.

The Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) exam certifies that users can create and expose cloud-native applications for Kubernetes. 
A CKAD can describe apps resources and utilize fundamental primitives to build, monitor, and troubleshoot scalable apps and tools in Kubernetes.

CKA has displayed the capacity to install, configure, and manage Kubernetes clusters at the production level.
CKAD can describe apps resources and utilize fundamental primitives to build, monitor, and troubleshoot scalable apps and tools in Kubernetes.

It is up to your background and preparation. CKAD is solely dedicated to basic concepts of building, monitoring, and troubleshooting scalable applications and tools. CKAD is a good first choice when deciding between the two options.
