DO180: Red Hat OpenShift Administration I: Containers & Kubernetes


Deploy, manage, and troubleshoot containerized applications running as Kubernetes workloads in OpenShift clusters.

Red Hat OpenShift Administration I: Managing Containers and Kubernetes (DO180) prepares OpenShift cluster administrators to manage Kubernetes workloads and to collaborate with developers, DevOps engineers, system administrators, and SREs to ensure the availability of application workloads. This course focuses on managing typical end-user applications that are often accessible from a web or mobile UI and that represent most cloud-native and containerized workloads. Managing applications also includes deploying and updating their dependencies, such as databases, messaging, and authentication systems.

The skills that you learn in this course apply to all versions of OpenShift, including Red Hat OpenShift on AWS (ROSA), Azure Red Hat OpenShift, and OpenShift Container Platform.

Course content summary

  • Managing OpenShift clusters from the command-line interface and from the web console.
  • Troubleshooting network connectivity between applications inside and outside an OpenShift cluster.
  • Connecting Kubernetes workloads to storage for application data.
  • Configuring Kubernetes workloads for high availability and reliability.
  • Managing updates to container images, settings, and Kubernetes manifests of an application.


The participant must be able to use Linux terminal session and issue operating system commands. They have to be a Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) or possess experience equivalent to RHCSA. In addition, they may preferably have experience with web application architectures and their corresponding technologies.

Target Audience

  • System administrators and platform operators who are interested in managing OpenShift clusters and containerized applications.
  • Site Reliability Engineers who are interested in maintaining and troubleshooting containerized applications on Kubernetes.
  • System and software architects who are interested in learning and using the features and functions of an OpenShift cluster.

Run Applications as Containers and Pods
Run and troubleshoot containerized applications as unmanaged Kubernetes pods.

Deploy Managed and Networked Applications on Kubernetes
Deploy applications and expose them to network access from inside and outside a Kubernetes cluster.

Manage Storage for Application Configuration and Data
Externalize application configurations in Kubernetes resources, and provision storage volumes for persistent data files.

Configure Applications for Reliability
Configure applications to work with Kubernetes for high availability and resilience.

Manage Application Updates
Manage reproducible application updates and rollbacks of code and configurations.
