Overview of this book

Kubernetes and DevOps are the two pillars that can keep your business at the top by ensuring high performance of your IT infrastructure. Introduction to DevOps with Kubernetes will help you develop the skills you need to improve your DevOps with the power of Kubernetes. The book begins with an overview of Kubernetes primitives and DevOps concepts. You'll understand how Kubernetes can assist you with overcoming a wide range of real-world operation challenges. You will get to grips with creating and upgrading a cluster, and then learn how to deploy, update, and scale an application on Kubernetes. As you advance through the chapters, you’ll be able to monitor an application by setting up a pod failure alert on Prometheus. The book will also guide you in configuring Alertmanager to send alerts to the Slack channel and trace down a problem on the application using kubectl commands. By the end of this book, you’ll be able to manage the lifecycle of simple to complex applications on Kubernetes with confidence.

Storage Management in Kubernetes

Kubernetes provides a couple of built-in resources, such as Volumes, to manage storage needed for an application running on the cloud. As Kubernetes is highly adopted in the industry, there are many plugins available out of the box to make use of dynamic storage provisioning on the cloud or on-premise installations. This provides the required speed and efficiency for automation in DevOps. In the next section, we will demonstrate these native Kubernetes resources and show how to utilize them.


Kubernetes aims to address two problems with Volume abstraction. One is containers having only ephemeral storage, which is gone when the container crashes, and the other one is the need to share a common volume between the containers inside a pod.

Kubernetes provides a wide range of volume types to utilize all the cloud offerings as well as supporting on-premise solutions.

Here, you can find the full list of the volume types supported by Kubernetes...
