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.

Configuring and managing persistent storage using Rook

Rook is a cloud-native, open source storage orchestrator for Kubernetes. Rook provides self-managing, self-scaling, and self-healing distributed storage systems in Kubernetes. In this section, we will create multiple storage providers using the Rook storage orchestrator for your applications in Kubernetes. You will learn to create a Ceph provider for your stateful applications that require persistent storage.

Getting ready

Make sure that you have a Kubernetes 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:

  • Installing a Ceph provider using Rook
  • Creating a Ceph cluster
  • Verifying a Ceph cluster's health
  • Create a Ceph block storage class
  • Using a Ceph block storage class to create dynamic PVs
