Mastering Kubernetes - Second Edition

By: Gigi Sayfan

Overview of this book

Kubernetes is an open source system that is used to automate the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. If you are running more containers or want automated management of your containers, you need Kubernetes at your disposal. To put things into perspective, Mastering Kubernetes walks you through the advanced management of Kubernetes clusters. To start with, you will learn the fundamentals of both Kubernetes architecture and Kubernetes design in detail. You will discover how to run complex stateful microservices on Kubernetes including advanced features such as horizontal pod autoscaling, rolling updates, resource quotas, and persistent storage backend. Using real-world use cases, you will explore the options for network configuration, and understand how to set up, operate, and troubleshoot various Kubernetes networking plugins. In addition to this, you will get to grips with custom resource development and utilization in automation and maintenance workflows. To scale up your knowledge of Kubernetes, you will encounter some additional concepts based on the Kubernetes 1.10 release, such as Promethus, Role-based access control, API aggregation, and more. By the end of this book, you’ll know everything you need to graduate from intermediate to advanced level of understanding Kubernetes.

Using namespace to limit access

The Hue project is moving along nicely, and we have a few hundred microservices and about 100 developers and DevOps engineers working on it. Groups of related microservices emerge, and you notice that many of these groups are pretty autonomous. They are completely oblivious to the other groups. Also, there are some sensitive areas, such as health and finance, that you will want to control access to more effectively. Enter namespaces.

Let's create a new service, Hue-finance, and put it in a new namespace called restricted.

Here is the YAML file for the new restricted namespace:

kind: Namespace 
 apiVersion: v1
     name: restricted
       name: restricted
> kubectl create -f restricted-namespace.yaml
namespace "restricted" created  

Once the namespace has been created, we need to configure a context...
