Overview of this book

The fourth edition of the bestseller Mastering Kubernetes includes the most recent tools and code to enable you to learn the latest features of Kubernetes 1.25. This book contains a thorough exploration of complex concepts and best practices to help you master the skills of designing and deploying large-scale distributed systems on Kubernetes clusters. You’ll learn how to run complex stateless and stateful microservices on Kubernetes, including advanced features such as horizontal pod autoscaling, rolling updates, resource quotas, and persistent storage backends. In addition, you’ll understand how to utilize serverless computing and service meshes. Further, two new chapters have been added. “Governing Kubernetes” covers the problem of policy management, how admission control addresses it, and how policy engines provide a powerful governance solution. “Running Kubernetes in Production” shows you what it takes to run Kubernetes at scale across multiple cloud providers, multiple geographical regions, and multiple clusters, and it also explains how to handle topics such as upgrades, capacity planning, dealing with cloud provider limits/quotas, and cost management. By the end of this Kubernetes book, you’ll have a strong understanding of, and hands-on experience with, a wide range of Kubernetes capabilities.

Clusternet is an interesting project. It is centered around the idea of managing multiple Kubernetes clusters as “visiting the internet” (hence the name “Clusternet”). It supports cloud-based, on-prem, edge, and hybrid clusters. The core features of Clusternet are:

  • Kubernetes multi-cluster management and governance
  • Application coordination
  • A CLI via the kubectl plugin
  • Programmatic access via a wrapper to the Kubernetes Client-Go library

Clusternet architecture

The Clusternet architecture is similar to Karmada but simpler. There is a parent cluster that runs the Clusternet hub and Clusternet scheduler. On each child cluster, there is a Clusternet agent. The following diagram illustrates the structure and interactions between the components:

The hub has multiple roles. It is responsible for approving cluster registration requests and creating...
