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.

This chapter was the big one. We went from a simple Docker container mapped to a Pod, to Pods running as ReplicaSet, to ReplicaSets under Deployment, to StatefulSets managing Persistent Volume Claims (PVCs). We went from launching using raw Kubernetes yaml files to installing complex applications using Helm charts.

In the next chapter, you will learn how to perform cool tricks, such as scaling your application, and what to do when things go wrong. The power of the Kubernetes declarative engine, which lets you specify the desired state and let the machine figure out how to achieve it, will be realized. Without having advanced Network certification or knowledge, you will be able to diagnose common network errors while troubleshooting Kubernetes applications.
