Interview on Swarm


  • A machine running Linux Ubuntu 18.04 LTS as host operating system. Don't panic, we'll help you in this.
  • Machine hardware requirements are minimum 12GB RAM, 4 CPU cores, and 100GB storage.
  • Must have exceptional knowledge on Linux-based operating systems and it's commands.
  • Must have good understanding and hands-on with Docker.


The main objective of the Swarm course is to help you deploy a sample CRM app service and Redis database service on Docker containers in the Swarm cluster. The CRM app is built on Python Flask micro framework and uses Redis as a database.


Anyone from the IT/software industry who is passionate and willing to implement container orchestration and clustering can start learning Swarm. It doesn't matter whether you are a fresher or an experienced candidate, we always start from ground zero.


  • You do hands-on from day one.
  • We do digital whiteboarding to make you understand concepts and real-time implementations.
  • You can ask questions, participate in discussions, and get solutions for complex problems.
  • We deal with a variety of use cases and case studies.
  • We do deep diving on all topics.
