Anypoint Runtime Fabric is a container service that automates and orchestrates the deployment of Mule runtimes across any environment with centralized management through a single MuleSoft-hosted control plane. There are two Runtime Fabric options:

  • As a package that is installable on an existing Kubernetes environment on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), or Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). You operate and manage the Kubernetes environment.
  • As an appliance that includes Docker and Kubernetes. You install this version on virtual machines (VMs) or bare metal that you operate and manage.

This course is for Anypoint Platform administrators who want to learn the skills and best practices to install, operate, and maintain Runtime Fabric on virtual machines (VMs) or bare metal. In the hands-on exercises, this course uses EC2 instances on Amazon Web Services (AWS), but the process and steps are similar for other VMs. For Runtime Fabric installations on bare metal, the majority of the course is applicable except for the section on installation.

Note: For maximum flexibility and customization, you can use your own Kubernetes provider instead of the Kubernetes environment that is provided by MuleSoft with the Runtime Fabric appliance. In this case, you can instead take the Anypoint Platform Operations: Runtime Fabric on Self-Managed Kubernetes course.
