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 CircleCI

In this section, we will cover the initial configuration and requirements to deploy and manage Kubernetes services using CircleCI. You will learn how to create a pipeline so that you can build container images and store them in a Container Registry.

Getting ready

This recipe requires an active GitHub account with a project to build. We will use AWS EKS to demonstrate CI with CircleCI.

First, visit the following GitHub page of our demo application project and fork your copy to your GitHub account:

$ git clone

Clone the k8sdevopscookbook/circleci-demo-aws-eks repository to your workstation in order to use the circleci-demo-aws-eks example at

How to do it...

This section is further divided into the following subsections to make this process easier:

  • Getting started with CircleCI
  • Deploying changes to a Kubernetes cluster on Amazon...
