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.

Setting up a CI/CD pipeline on Amazon Web Services

In this section, we will cover the CI/CD pipeline construction workflow on AWS and built-in CI/CD capabilities. You will learn how to manage pipelines, how to run build commands during the pipeline steps, and how to store build result images on the Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR).

Getting ready

In the following recipe, you will learn how to build, test, and deploy an example service based on AWS services. All the operations mentioned here require an AWS account and an AWS user with a policy that has permission to use the related services, have HTTPS Git credentials for CodeCommit assigned, and a Kubernetes cluster deployed using AWS EKS. If you don't have one, go to and create one.

How to do it...

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

  • Creating an AWS CodeCommit code repository
  • Building projects with AWS CodeBuild
  • Creating an AWS CodeDeploy...
