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 an existing Kubernetes environment on Amazon EKS, AKS, or GKE. In the hands-on exercises, this course uses a Kubernetes cluster on Amazon EKS, but the steps are the same with minor command changes for a Kubernetes cluster on AKS or GKE.

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 this is not the case, you can instead use the Runtime Fabric appliance and take the Anypoint Platform Operations: Runtime Fabric on Virtual Machines course.
