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.

Automating tests with the Litmus framework

Litmus is an open source toolset that's used to run chaos experiments in Kubernetes. Litmus provides the Chaos Central Registration Depository (CRD) for cloud-native developers and SREs to inject, orchestrate, and monitor chaos to find potential weaknesses in Kubernetes deployments in real time in production. In this section, we will run some of these chaos experiments to validate the resiliency of the systems. You will learn how to build pipelines for CI and end-to-end testing in order to validate and certify the new Kubernetes version.

Getting ready

Clone the k8sdevopscookbook/src repository to your workstation to be able to use the manifest files under the chapter4 directory:

$ git clone
$ cd src/chapter4

Make sure you have a Kubernetes cluster ready and kubectl and helm configured so that you can manage the cluster resources.
