Overview of this book

Kubernetes is an open source orchestration platform for managing containers in a cluster environment. This Learning Path introduces you to the world of containerization, in addition to providing you with an overview of Docker fundamentals. As you progress, you will be able to understand how Kubernetes works with containers. Starting with creating Kubernetes clusters and running applications with proper authentication and authorization, you'll learn how to create high-availability Kubernetes clusters on Amazon Web Services (AWS), and also learn how to use kubeconfig to manage different clusters. Whether it is learning about Docker containers and Docker Compose, or building a continuous delivery pipeline for your application, this Learning Path will equip you with all the right tools and techniques to get started with containerization. By the end of this Learning Path, you will have gained hands-on experience of working with Docker containers and orchestrators, including SwarmKit and Kubernetes. This Learning Path includes content from the following Packt products: • Kubernetes Cookbook - Second Edition by Hideto Saito, Hui-Chuan Chloe Lee, and Ke-Jou Carol Hsu • Learn Docker - Fundamentals of Docker 18.x by Gabriel N. Schenker

Please try to answer the following questions to assess your learning progress:

  1. How will you create a named data volume with a name, for example my-products, using the default driver?
  2. How will you run a container using the image alpine and mount the volume  my-products in read-only mode into the /data container folder?
  3. How will you locate the folder which is associated with the volume my-products and navigate to it?  Also, how will you create a file, sample.txt with some content?
  4. How will you run another alpine container to which you mount the my-products volume to the /app-data folder, in read/write mode? Inside this container, navigate to the /app-data folder and create a hello.txt file with some content.
  5. How will you mount a host volume, for example ~/my-project, into a container?
  6. How will you remove all unused volumes from your system?
  7. How will you determine the exact version of the Linux kernel and of Docker running on your system?
