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.

Defining resource defaults and limitations within a namespace

We already learned how to leverage Kubernetes namespaces to create clusters within a cluster. When combined with RBAC, we can create namespaces and give users permissions to use them without exposing the whole cluster. Still, one thing is missing.

We can, let's say, create a test namespace and allow users to create objects without permitting them to access other namespaces. Even though that is better than allowing everyone full access to the cluster, such a strategy would not prevent people from bringing the whole cluster down or affecting the performance of applications running in other namespaces. The piece of the puzzle we're missing is resource control on the namespace level.

We already discussed that every container should have resource limits and requests defined. That information helps Kubernetes schedule...
