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.

Creating an ingress service and service mesh using Istio

Istio is a popular open source service mesh. In this section, we will get basic Istio service mesh functionality up and running. You will learn how to create a service mesh to secure, connect, and monitor microservices.

Service mesh is a very detailed concept and we don't intend to explain any detailed use cases. Instead, we will focus on getting our service up and running.

Getting ready

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

Clone the repository to your workstation, as follows:

$ git clone 
$ cd istio

We will use the examples in the preceding repository to install Istio on our Kubernetes cluster.

How to do it…

This section is further divided into the following subsections to make this process easier:

  • Installing Istio using Helm
  • Verifying the installation
  • Creating an ingress gateway...
