Prerequisite knowledge

  • A basic understanding of Kubernetes, cloud providers and managed services, and configuring applications to used managed cloud services

What you'll learn

  • Learn how to use the Kubernetes Service Catalog to dynamically provision and consume managed cloud services


In a cloud-native world, managed services such as database, storage, and event processing systems can be utilized by applications without the overhead of total service ownership. Kubernetes provides an extension mechanism for dynamically requesting and consuming managed services through the Kubernetes Service Catalog API. Using the service catalog, you can deploy applications into your Kubernetes cluster that are configured to dynamically requests and connect to managed services.

Neil Peterson leads a technical deep dive into using the Kubernetes Service Catalog to dynamically provision and consume managed cloud services. You’ll learn the different components of the Kubernetes service catalog and how to integrate the Service Catalog with different cloud providers and utilize the provider services in your Kubernetes deployments. By the time you’re through, you’ll understand how to configure the Service Catalog and deploy an application into your cluster that dynamically requests and uses a managed cloud service.
