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.

Using Pods to run tools

We won't explore how to write a continuous deployment pipeline in this chapter. That is reserved for the next one. Right now, we are only concerned whether our Jenkins setup is working as expected. We need to know if Jenkins can interact with Kubernetes, whether we can run the tools we need as Pods, and whether they can be spun across different Namespaces. On top of those, we still need to solve the issue of building container images. Since we already established that it is not a good idea to mount a Docker socket, nor to run containers in privileged mode, we need to find a valid alternative. In parallel to solving those and a few other challenges we'll encounter, we cannot lose focus from automation. Everything we do has to be converted into automatic setup unless we make a conscious decision that it is not worth the trouble.
