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.

Zero-Downtime Deployments

Updating a single-replica MongoDB cannot demonstrate true power behind Deployments. We need a scalable service. It's not that MongoDB cannot be scaled (it can), but it is not as straight-forward as an application that was designed to be scalable. We'll jump to the second application in the stack and create a Deployment of the ReplicaSet that will create Pods based on the vfarcic/go-demo-2 image. But, before we do that, we'll spend a few moments discussing the need for zero-downtime deployments.

On the one hand, our applications are supposed to have very high availability. Depending on the context and the goals, we usually discuss how many nines are coming after 99%. At the very least, an application must have availability of at least 99.9%. More likely, it should be something closer to 99.99 or even 99.999 percent availability. Hundred...
