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.

Creating a cluster

Just as before, we'll start the practical part by making sure that we have the latest version of the k8s-specs repository.

All the commands from this chapter are available in the ( Gist.

2 3 git pull

Unlike the previous chapters, you cannot use an existing cluster this time. The reason behind that lies in reduced requirements. This time, the cluster should NOT have ChartMuseum. Soon you'll see why. What we need are the same hardware specs (excluding GKE), with NGINX Ingress and Tiller running inside the cluster, and with the environment variable LB_IP that holds the address of the IP through which we can access the external load balancer, or with the IP of the VM in case of single VM local clusters like minikube, minishift, and Docker for Mac or Windows...
