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.

Managing GCE PD volumes in Kubernetes

Google Cloud Platform (GCP) provides persistent block-level storage volumes for use with Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) instances. In this section, we will create storage classes for your applications in Kubernetes running in the GKE. You will learn to create a StorageClass resource in Kubernetes, you will learn about the parameters available with the variation in performance of GCP PD volume types, and also use the new CSI.

Getting ready

Clone the k8sdevopscookbook/src repository to your workstation:

$ git clone
$ cd src/chapter5

Make sure that you have a regional GKE cluster ready and kubectl configured to manage the cluster resources.

How to do it…

This section is sub-divided further into the following subsections to facilitate the process:

  • Creating a GCE persistent disk storage class
  • Changing the default storage class
  • Using GCE PD volumes for persistent storage
  • Using GCE PD storage classes to...
