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.

Scaling and Upgrading Applications

TERNAIn this chapter, we will discuss the methods and strategies that we can use to dynamically scale containerized services running on Kubernetes to handle the changing traffic needs of our service. After following the recipes in this chapter, you will have the skills needed to create load balancers to distribute traffic to multiple workers and increase bandwidth. You will also know how to handle upgrades in production with minimum downtime.

In this chapter, we will cover the following recipes:

  • Scaling applications on Kubernetes
  • Assigning applications to nodes with priority
  • Creating an external load balancer
  • Creating an ingress service and service mesh using Istio
  • Creating an ingress service and service mesh using Linkerd
  • Auto-healing pods in Kubernetes
  • Managing upgrades through blue/green deployments
