We can’t call CKAD easy because it doesn’t have topics related to cluster administration. Duration of CKA exam is 2 hours whereas the CKAD exam allows 3 hours.
This post will discuss the two most important certificates of Kubernetes. CKA which stands for Certified Kubernetes Administrator and CKAD which stands for Certified Kubernetes Application Developer.
We will start by discussing what is common in these two exams followed by how they both are different and how you can prepare to clear these exams. So, without any delay let’s get started.
The two exams I will be discussing are from the Linux Foundation which are the Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) which is located here http://shrsl.com/2gtec and the Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) is located here http://shrsl.com/2gtfv
What is common in both the exams?
Become a Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA)! Difference between both the exams:
The purpose of CKA( Certified Kubernetes Administrator) is to assure the applicant must have the skill, knowledge and competency to perform the responsibilities of Kubernetes administrators whereas CKAD is only about concepts such as deployments, DaemonSets, Pods and other API primitives. We can call CKAD as a lighter version of the CKA exam.
CKAD exams make sure that the applicant can design, build, configure and expose native cloud applications for Kubernetes whereas CKA exam requires knowledge of Kubernetes internals such as etcd, tls bootstrap, and kubelet.
Our original Kubernetes tool list was so popular that we've curated another great list of tools to help you improve your functionality with the platform.
This article explains how you can leverage Kubernetes to reduce multi cloud complexities and improve stability, scalability, and velocity.
DevOps and Cloud computing are joined at the hip, now that fact is well appreciated by the organizations that engaged in SaaS cloud and developed applications in the Cloud. During the COVID crisis period, most of the organizations have started using cloud computing services and implementing a cloud-first strategy to establish their remote operations. Similarly, the extended DevOps strategy will make the development process more agile with automated test cases.
