Serverless Architectures with Kubernetes

By: Onur Yılmaz, Sathsara Sarathchandra

Overview of this book

Kubernetes has established itself as the standard platform for container management, orchestration, and deployment. By learning Kubernetes, you’ll be able to design your own serverless architecture by implementing the function-as-a-service (FaaS) model. After an accelerated, hands-on overview of the serverless architecture and various Kubernetes concepts, you’ll cover a wide range of real-world development challenges faced by real-world developers, and explore various techniques to overcome them. You’ll learn how to create production-ready Kubernetes clusters and run serverless applications on them. You'll see how Kubernetes platforms and serverless frameworks such as Kubeless, Apache OpenWhisk and OpenFaaS provide the tooling to help you develop serverless applications on Kubernetes. You'll also learn ways to select the appropriate framework for your upcoming project. By the end of this book, you’ll have the skills and confidence to design your own serverless applications using the power and flexibility of Kubernetes.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this chapter, you will be able to:

  • Set up a local Kubernetes cluster on your computer
  • Access a Kubernetes cluster using the dashboard and the Terminal
  • Identify the fundamental Kubernetes resources, the building blocks of Kubernetes applications
  • Install complex applications on a Kubernetes cluster

In this chapter, we will explain the basics of the Kubernetes architecture, the methods of accessing the Kubernetes API, and fundamental Kubernetes resources. In addition to that, we will deploy a real-life application into Kubernetes.
