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.

The Future of Kubernetes

In this chapter, we will look at the future of Kubernetes from multiple angles. We’ll start with the momentum of Kubernetes since its inception across dimensions such as community, ecosystem, and mindshare. Spoiler alert – Kubernetes won the container orchestration wars by a landslide. As Kubernetes grows and matures, the battle lines shift from beating competitors to fighting against its own complexity. Usability, tooling, and education will play a major role as container orchestration is still new, fast-moving, and not a well-understood domain. Then we will take a look at some very interesting patterns and trends, and finally, we will review my predictions from the second edition, and I will make some new predictions.

The covered topics are as follows:

  • The Kubernetes momentum
  • The importance of CNCF
  • Kubernetes extensibility
  • Service mesh integration
  • Serverless computing on Kubernetes
  • Kubernetes and...
