Hands-On Kubernetes on Azure

By: Shivakumar Gopalakrishnan, Gunther Lenz

Overview of this book

Microsoft is now one of the most significant contributors to Kubernetes open source projects. Kubernetes helps to create, configure, and manage a cluster of virtual machines that are preconfigured to run containerized applications. This book will be your guide to performing successful container orchestration and deployment of Kubernetes clusters on Azure. You will get started by learning how to deploy and manage highly scalable applications, along with understanding how to set up a production-ready Kubernetes cluster on Azure. As you advance, you will learn how to reduce the complexity and operational overheads of managing a Kubernetes cluster on Azure. By the end of this book, you will not only be capable of deploying and managing Kubernetes clusters on Azure with ease, but also have the knowledge of best practices for working with advanced AKS concepts for complex systems.

Application Deployment on AKS

In this chapter, we will look at the details of deploying an application on the Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). An application consists of multiple parts, and we will build an application one step at a time, while explaining the conceptual model behind it. You will be able to easily adapt the steps in this chapter to deploy any other application on AKS. The sample guestbook application will be deployed on AKS. The reader will understand the usefulness of various Kubernetes concepts, such as Pods, Replication Controllers (RCs), services, ConfigMaps, Namespaces, and Deployments. We will introduce deployment helpers, such as Helm, to streamline the deployment process.

The following topics will be covered in this chapter:

  • Deploying the sample guestbook application
  • Full deployment of the sample guestbook application
  • The helm way of installing complex...
