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 Kubernetes Volume Snapshots and restore

In this section, we will create Volume Snapshots from our persistent volumes in Kubernetes. By following this recipe, you will learn how to enable the Volume Snapshot functionality, create snapshot storage classes, and restore from existing Volume Snapshots.

Getting ready

Make sure you have a Kubernetes cluster ready and kubectl configured to manage the cluster resources.

Clone the k8sdevopscookbook/src repository to your workstation to use the manifest files under the chapter6 directory, as follows:

$ git clone
$ cd src/chapter6

Make sure the Container Storage Interface (CSI) driver from your preferred storage vendor is installed on your Kubernetes cluster and has implemented the snapshot functionality. We covered the installation of the AWS EBS, GCP PD, Azure Disk, Rook, and OpenEBS CSI drivers in Chapter 5, Preparing for Stateful Workloads.
