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.

Using ConfigMaps to Inject Configuration Files

ConfigMaps allow us to keep configurations separate from application images. Such separation is useful when other alternatives are not a good fit.

Almost every application can be fine-tuned through configuration. Traditional software deployment methods fostered the use of configuration files. However, we are not discussing traditional, but advanced, distributed, and immutable deployments through Kubernetes schedulers. Usage of fundamentally new technology often requires new processes and different architecture, if we are to leverage its potential to its maximum. On the other hand, we cannot just throw away everything we have and start anew.

We'll have to try to balance new principles and the legacy needs.

If we were to start developing a new application today, it would be, among other things, distributed, scalable, stateless...
