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.

Fully deploying of the sample guestbook application

After taking a detour to get our feet wet on dynamically configuring applications using ConfigMap, we will return to our regularly-scheduled program by deploying the rest of the guestbook application. You will see the concepts of Deployment, Replica Sets, and Pods repeated again for the backends and frontends. We will introduce another key concept called Service. You might have also noticed the power of protocols and Docker images. Even though we switched to a different image for redis-master, we have an expectation that the rest of the implementation should go through without any hitches.

Exposing the Redis master service

With plain Docker, the exposed port is constrained...
