Control, manage, trace, monitor, and test your microservices with Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh.

Openshift created an enterprise-ready, multi-tenant platform that made deploying and scaling microservice applications efficient and repeatable. But as these architectures become larger and more complex, defining how these services interact with each other becomes increasingly difficult. Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh comprises three products, Istio, Jaeger, and Kiali that facilitate managing service interaction, provide service tracing, and create a visual representation of communication pathways.

Building Resilient Microservice Applications with Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh (DO328) is a 3-day introduction to Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh that teaches students installation, service monitoring, service management, and service resilience with Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh.

This course is based on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 4.4.

Virtual Learning

This interactive training can be taken from any location, your office or home and is delivered by a trainer. This training does not have any delegates in the class with the instructor, since all delegates are virtually connected. Virtual delegates do not travel to this course, Global Knowledge will send you all the information needed before the start of the course and you can test the logins.

Skills Gained

Microservice architectures with OpenShift and Service Mesh enable Organizations to improve application resilience and scalability, while decreasing developer overhead. This leads organizations to improved time to market as well as improved insight into their microservice architecture by being able to visualize and trace data flow throughout their applications. These insights can dictate better resource allocation for applications as well as more quickly identifying defects in specific microservices.

Students will be able to use the concepts in this course to simplify and more efficiently manage their service interactions. Students will learn how to install and configure Service Mesh to define, monitor, and manage service interaction within their microservice architecture. This course is intended to illustrate the ease of Service Mesh's “sidecar” approach and to highlight the benefits of service resilience and monitoring that the product provides.


  • AD283: Implementing Microservice Architectures, or demonstrate equivalent experience creating microservice applications is strongly recommended, but not required.
  • DO180/DO288/EX288, or basic OpenShift experience is strongly recommended.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. Its a cost effective option. One on one training can be delivered too, at reasonable rates.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
