The DevOps 2.3 Toolkit

By: Viktor Farcic

Overview of this book

Building on The DevOps 2.0 Toolkit, The DevOps 2.1 Toolkit: Docker Swarm, and The DevOps 2.2 Toolkit: Self-Sufficient Docker Clusters, Viktor Farcic brings his latest exploration of the DevOps Toolkit as he takes you on a journey to explore the features of Kubernetes. The DevOps 2.3 Toolkit: Kubernetes is a book in the series that helps you build a full DevOps Toolkit. This book in the series looks at Kubernetes, the tool designed to, among other roles, make it easier in the creation and deployment of highly available and fault-tolerant applications at scale, with zero downtime. Within this book, Viktor will cover a wide range of emerging topics, including what exactly Kubernetes is, how to use both first and third-party add-ons for projects, and how to get the skills to be able to call yourself a “Kubernetes ninja.” Work with Viktor and dive into the creation and exploration of Kubernetes with a series of hands-on guides.

Exploring quality of service (QoS) contracts

When we send a request to Kubernetes API to create a Pod (directly or through one of the Controllers), it initiates the scheduling process. What happens next or, to be more precise, where it will decide to run a Pod, depends hugely on the resources we defined for the containers that form the Pod. In a nutshell, Kubernetes will decide to deploy a Pod, whenever it is possible, inside one of the nodes that has enough available memory.

When memory requests are defined, Pods will get the memory they requested. If memory usage of one of the containers exceeds the requested amount, or if some other Pod needs that memory, the Pod hosting it might be killed. Please note that I wrote that a Pod might be killed. Whether that will happen depends on the requests from other Pods and the available memory in the cluster. On the other hand, containers...
