The DevOps 2.4 Toolkit

By: Viktor Farcic

Overview of this book

Building on The DevOps 2.3 Toolkit: Kubernetes, Viktor Farcic brings his latest exploration of the Docker technology as he records his journey to continuously deploying applications with Jenkins into a Kubernetes cluster. The DevOps 2.4 Toolkit: Continuously Deploying Applications with Jenkins to a Kubernetes Cluster is the latest book in Viktor Farcic’s series that helps you build a full DevOps Toolkit. This book guides readers through the process of building, testing, and deploying applications through fully automated pipelines. Within this book, Viktor will cover a wide-range of emerging topics, including an exploration of continuous delivery and deployment in Kubernetes using Jenkins. It also shows readers how to perform continuous integration inside these clusters, and discusses the distribution of Kubernetes applications, as well as installing and setting up Jenkins. Work with Viktor and dive into the creation of self-adaptive and self-healing systems within Docker.

Now It Is Your Turn

Creating a cluster

We'll start the hands-on part by going back to the local copy of the vfarcic/k8s-specs repository and pulling the latest version.

All the commands from this chapter are available in the ( Gist.
 1  cd k8s-specs
2 3 git pull

Just as in the previous chapters, we'll need a cluster if we are to do the hands-on exercises. The rules are still the same. You can continue using the same cluster as before, or you can switch to a different Kubernetes flavor. You can continue using one of the Kubernetes distributions listed as follows or be adventurous and try something different. If you go with the latter, please let me know how it went, and I'll test it myself and incorporate it into the list.

Beware! The minimum requirements for the cluster are now slightly higher....
