Overview of this book

Continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) has never been simple, but these days the landscape is more bewildering than ever; its terrain riddled with blind alleys and pitfalls that seem almost designed to trap the less-experienced developer. If you’re determined enough to keep your balance on the cutting edge, this book will help you navigate the landscape with ease. This book will guide you through the most modern ways of building CI/CD pipelines with AWS, taking you step-by-step from the basics right through to the most advanced topics in this domain. The book starts by covering the basics of CI/CD with AWS. Once you’re well-versed with tools such as AWS Codestar, Proton, CodeGuru, App Mesh, SecurityHub, and CloudFormation, you’ll focus on chaos engineering, the latest trend in testing the fault tolerance of your system. Next, you’ll explore the advanced concepts of AIOps and DevSecOps, two highly sought-after skill sets for securing and optimizing your CI/CD systems. All along, you’ll cover the full range of AWS CI/CD features, gaining real-world expertise. By the end of this AWS book, you’ll have the confidence you need to create resilient, secure, and performant CI/CD pipelines using the best techniques and technologies that AWS has to offer.

Backup and restore using Velero

Deploying an application in a container-centric way has various advantages and perks over traditional VMs. Everything that we did on traditional VMs can be easily done on containers with greater performance, cost, and flexibility. Backup and restore is also one of the critical tasks that we perform in a traditional environment. It's always recommended to back up your production Kubernetes cluster resources. In this section, we will learn how to use Velero as a backup and restore tool for Kubernetes workloads.

Velero is an open source tool developed by VMware that helps to automate the backup and restore of Kubernetes resources. Velero can be used both on public as well as on-premises clusters (such as OpenShift). Velero helps with the following tasks:

  • Disaster recovery: Velero takes the backup of the cluster and restores it in the event of disaster. But again, there are a couple of ways to implement it, either active-passive or hot-standby...
