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.

Creating Kubernetes persistent volumes

The fact that we have a few EBS volumes available does not mean that Kubernetes knows about their existence. We need to add PersistentVolumes that will act as a bridge between our Kubernetes cluster and AWS EBS volumes.

PersistentVolumes allow us to abstract details of how storage is provided (for example, EBS) from how it is consumed. Just like Volumes, PersistentVolumes are resources in a Kubernetes cluster. The main difference is that their lifecycle is independent of individual Pods that are using them.

Let's take a look at a definition that will create a few PersistentVolumes:

cat pv/pv.yml  

The output, limited to the first of the three volumes, is as follows:

kind: PersistentVolume
apiVersion: v1
  name: manual-ebs-01
    type: ebs
  storageClassName: manual-ebs
    storage: 5Gi
