D2iQ Releases Conductor
July 08, 2020

D2iQ announced the release of Conductor, a new interactive learning platform that enables enterprises to access hands-on cloud native courses and training.

With Conductor, developers and operators can now learn Kubernetes on actual clusters right from their web browser, increasing the team's capability and maximizing resource utilization.

Conductor addresses the growing skill gap through hands-on courses and labs that are curated by CNCF-certified engineers and trainers and focused on Kubernetes and the entire cloud native lifecycle, including containerization, CI/CD, observability and security. Through the Conductor Admin interface, administrators can track learner proficiency and ensure training is completed before developers and operators are allowed to interact with the organization's production environment.

Enterprises are under pressure to unlock the benefits of cloud native technologies to reduce costs and accelerate innovation. As the technology evolves, the demand for advanced skills has only increased. With the extreme skills gap, inexperienced and untrained staff can make costly production mistakes. Conductor helps to eliminate these mistakes by enabling developers to immerse themselves in cloud native technology. Through real-time validation, as developers are working on actual Kubernetes clusters, they build the knowledge and confidence that their clusters are in the right state before moving forward.

"The rapid rate of change in IT infrastructure, along with the popularity of Kubernetes has created a critical need for experienced and skilled developers to help navigate the ever-growing complexities of the technology," said Ben Hindman, Co-Founder and CTO, D2iQ. "Conductor leverages more than a decade of experience and pioneering work to provide users with the unique opportunity to practice and build on their cloud native skills, all within their own production environment. Conductor is the latest example of D2iQ's long-standing commitment to providing a complete offering of technology, services, support and training needed to help organizations harness the power of Kubernetes in Day 2 operations."

Conductor is available now.
