Who should take this course?

This course is for Anypoint Platform administrators including operations personnel, developers, and architects who want to get hands-on experience installing, configuring, and using Runtime Fabric on a managed Kubernetes solution provided by AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud.


Note: This course does NOT teach you how to operate and manage a Kubernetes environment; your company needs to already have this expertise to use Runtime Fabric on self-managed Kubernetes. If you instead want to get experience with our integration platform as a service, take the Anypoint Platform Operations: CloudHub 2.0 course, and if you want to stay completely in your own-hosted environment, take the Anypoint Platform Operations: Customer-Hosted Runtimes course.




A basic knowledge and experience with the components of Anypoint Platform from one of the following:


Prior system knowledge and experience:


  • A knowledge of system administration and server commands
  • A basic understanding of data formats such as XML, CSV, and JSON
  • A basic knowledge of working on Linux systems
  • A basic understanding of remote connection mechanisms such as SSL and SSH
  • (Optional, but useful) A basic understanding of containerization concepts and technologies

When you complete this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the features, benefits, and architecture of Runtime Fabric.
  • Install and configure Runtime Fabric on self-managed Kubernetes.
  • Deploy Mule applications to Runtime Fabric.
  • Perform maintenance tasks using command-line tools.
  • Scale Runtime Fabric deployments for performance and high availability.
  • Use Anypoint Monitoring for alerts, dashboarding, and monitoring.
