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.

Creating a CI/CD pipeline in GitLab

GitLab is a complete DevOps toolchain that's delivered in a single application platform. GitLab provides all the necessary tooling you need to manage, plan, create, verify, package, release, configure, monitor, and secure your applications.

In this section, we will focus on the CI/CD pipeline features of GitLab that can be consumed as SaaS or self-hosted service. We will import an application and create a pipeline in GitLab. You will learn how to create a CI/CD pipeline with Auto DevOps and promote an application from staging into production.

Getting ready

In the following recipe, you will learn how to create a pipeline with Auto DevOps. This recipe requires GitLab (self-managed or SaaS) and an account with your preferred cloud vendor where you installed your Kubernetes cluster using GitLab.

The Community Edition of GitLab includes the Auto Build, Auto Test, Auto Review Apps, Auto Deploy, and Auto Monitoring features. In addition to these features...
