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 Azure DevOps

Azure DevOps provides version control, reporting, automated builds, and project/lab/testing and release management capabilities. Azure DevOps is available as a SaaS or on-premises server product. In this section, we will cover the Azure DevOps workflow configuration and built-in CI/CD capabilities using the SaaS product. You will learn how to manage workflows and create Azure pipelines.

Getting ready

In the following recipe, you will learn how to create a pipeline example in a repository you own by adding a YAML file. This recipe requires an active GitHub account with a project ready to be built. We will use AKS to demonstrate continuous delivery with Azure Pipelines.

All the operations mentioned here require an Azure DevOps account. If you don't have one, go to and create one. Deploying the application on Azure Kubernetes Service also requires an active Azure Cloud subscription.
