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

7. Kubernetes Serverless with Kubeless

Learning Objectives

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

  • Create a Kubernetes cluster with Minikube
  • Install the Kubeless framework on Kubernetes
  • Create, update, call, and delete Kubeless functions
  • List, describe, debug, and monitor Kubeless functions
  • Create HTTP and PubSub triggers for Kubeless functions

In this chapter, we will first learn about the Kubeless architecture. Then, we'll create our first Kubeless function, deploy it, and invoke it. You'll also learn how to debug a Kubeless function in the case of a failure.
