Kubernetes Design Patterns and Extensions

By: Onur Yılmaz

Overview of this book

Before plunging into how Kubernetes works, this book introduces you to the world of container orchestration and describes the recent changes in application development. You'll understand problems that Kubernetes solves and get to grips with using Kubernetes resources to deploy applications. In addition to this, you'll learn to apply the security model of Kubernetes clusters. Kubernetes Design Patterns and Extensions describes how services running in Kubernetes can leverage the platform's security features. Once you've grasped all this, you'll explore how to troubleshoot Kubernetes clusters and debug Kubernetes applications. You also discover how to analyze the networking model and its alternatives in Kubernetes, and apply best practices with design patterns. By the end of this book, you'll have studied all about using the power of Kubernetes for managing your containers.

Community-Maintained Client Libraries

Kubernetes has an active and collaborative open source community, which has also increased its popularity. There are around 20 community-maintained client libraries that are listed in the Kubernetes documentation, which cover the following languages:

  • Clojure
  • Go
  • Java
  • Lisp
  • Node.js
  • Perl
  • PHP
  • Python
  • Ruby
  • Scala
  • dotNet
  • Elixir

There are some critical points to consider before using a community-maintained client library:

  • Aim of the library: It is crucial to consider the aim of the development team and library. Although it seems not directly related to the software itself, it affects how the client library is developed. For instance, some libraries focus on simplicity and compromise on capability coverage. If the vision of your application and the client library don't match, it would be difficult to maintain the application in the long run.
