One major benefit to Linux containers is the ability to spin up the containers quickly. This makes them an ideal solution for providing a throwaway testing environment. For example, we may want to take, and then verify, backups of any one of our important configuration directories. In this hands-on lab we'll do just that, and create a temporary Alpine Linux 3.11 environment that will extract our backups, then check it against the original files to ensure the backup is accurate.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
