Kubernetes - A Complete DevOps Cookbook

By: Murat Karslioglu

Overview of this book

Kubernetes is a popular open source orchestration platform for managing containers in a cluster environment. With this Kubernetes cookbook, you’ll learn how to implement Kubernetes using a recipe-based approach. The book will prepare you to create highly available Kubernetes clusters on multiple clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Azure, Alibaba, and on-premises data centers. Starting with recipes for installing and configuring Kubernetes instances, you’ll discover how to work with Kubernetes clients, services, and key metadata. You’ll then learn how to build continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines for your applications, and understand various methods to manage containers. As you advance, you’ll delve into Kubernetes' integration with Docker and Jenkins, and even perform a batch process and configure data volumes. You’ll get to grips with methods for scaling, security, monitoring, logging, and troubleshooting. Additionally, this book will take you through the latest updates in Kubernetes, including volume snapshots, creating high availability clusters with kops, running workload operators, new inclusions around kubectl and more. By the end of this book, you’ll have developed the skills required to implement Kubernetes in production and manage containers proficiently.

Deploying and managing the life cycle of Jenkins X

Jenkins X is an open source solution that offers software developers pipeline automation, built-in GitOps, CI, automated testing, and CD, known as CI/CD, in Kubernetes. Jenkins X is highly focused on accelerating software delivery at a large scale using the Kubernetes ecosystem.

In this section, we will focus on Jenkins X recipes and create a Kubernetes cluster with CI/CD capabilities on your cloud provider.

Getting ready

In the following recipes, you will learn how to create a static Jenkins Server to deploy Kubernetes clusters with pipeline automation and automated CI/CD with GitOps promotion and preview environments.

This recipe requires kubectl and Helm. For this recipe, we will use GKE (short for Google Kubernetes Engine), therefore the gcloud CLI tool needs to be installed as well. You also need to have a proper GitHub organization and GitHub account created.
