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.

Preparing for Stateful Workloads

In this chapter, we will discuss using popular open source storage solutions on Kubernetes and how to protect the state of applications from node or application failures and share the same data, or how to handle reattaching volumes when the pod is rescheduled on a different node. After following the recipes in this chapter, you will have acquired the skills to use both block and file storage options in self-managed infrastructure or private clouds.

In this chapter, we will be covering the following recipes:

  • Managing Amazon EBS volumes in Kubernetes
  • Managing GCE PD volumes in Kubernetes
  • Managing Azure Disk volumes in Kubernetes
  • Configuring and managing persistent storage using Rook
  • Configuring and managing persistent storage using OpenEBS
  • Setting up NFS for shared storage on Kubernetes
  • Troubleshooting storage issues
