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 Azure Disk volumes in Kubernetes

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

Getting ready

Clone the k8sdevopscookbook/src repository to your workstation in order to use manifest files under the chapter5 directory:

$ git clone
$ cd src/chapter5

Make sure 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 an Azure Disk storage class
  • Changing the default storage class to ZRS
  • Using Azure Disk...
