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.

With the exception of emptyDir, our choice of volume type demonstrated in this chapter was not simply based on the ability to use them in a Minikube cluster. Each of these three volume types will be an essential piece in the chapters that follow. We'll use hostPath to access Docker server from inside containers. The gitRepo volume type will be very significant once we start designing a continuous deployment pipeline. The emptyDir type will be required as long as we're using Minikube. Until we have a better solution for creating a Kubernetes cluster, emptyDir will continue to be used in our Minikube examples.

We have only scratched the surface with volumes. There are at least two more that we should explore inside Minikube, and one (or more) when we change to a different solution for creating a cluster. The volumes that we'll explore throughout the rest...
