About lab assessment

Lab assessments are Hands-on labs with the gloves off. You jump into an auto-provisioned cloud environment and are given a goal to accomplish. No instructions, no hints. To pass, you'll have a limited time to demonstrate your problem-solving skills and get the checks that inspect the state of your lab environment.


Kubernetes is a container orchestration tool that enables you to easily create and operate sophisticated application deployments in a performant and easy to maintain fashion.

This lab tests your ability to work with Kubernetes across three levels, ranging from creating a deployment to configuring and Istio service mesh.

Please note, this lab creates a Kubernetes cluster which will take up to ten minutes. Please make sure you have enough time available before starting this lab.

This is a real environment, which means you can prove your knowledge in an applied way, substituting multiple choice questions for a dynamic performance-based exam situation.
