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.

2. Introduction to Serverless in the Cloud

5. Production-Ready Kubernetes Clusters

Learning Objectives

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

  • Identify the requirements of Kubernetes cluster setup
  • Create a production-ready Kubernetes cluster in Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
  • Manage cluster autoscaling to add new servers to a Kubernetes cluster
  • Migrate applications in production clusters

In this chapter, we will learn about the key considerations for the setup of Kubernetes. Following that, we will also study the different Kubernetes platform options. Then, we move on to creating a production-ready Kubernetes cluster in cloud platforms and performing administrative tasks.
