For the last six months, the Acme Anvil Corporation has been migrating some of their bare metal infrastructure to Docker containers. A schism has developed between the members of your team on whether to use Docker Swarm or Kubernetes. To settle the dispute, your manager has decided to create a series of challenges. You have been tasked with setting up a Kubernetes cluster with 3 nodes: 1 master and 2 workers. First, you will create a deployment with 3 replicas using the httpd image. Next, you will create a service that will make the pod publicly accessible. Finally, you will scale the pod up to 5 replicas and then down to 2.

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.
