Schedule and run application containers using Kubernetes

  • Get to grips with a wide range of tools to monitor and secure your deployments
  • Manage your container clusters and networks using Kubernetes
  • Get well-versed with the fundamentals of Kubernetes

Kubernetes has continued to grow and achieve broad adoption across various industries, helping you to orchestrate and automate container deployments on a massive scale.

Based on the recent release of Kubernetes 1.12, Getting Started with Kubernetes gives you a complete understanding of how to install a Kubernetes cluster. The book focuses on core Kubernetes constructs, such as pods, services, replica sets, replication controllers, and labels. You will understand cluster-level networking in Kubernetes, and learn to set up external access to applications running in the cluster.

As you make your way through the book, you'll understand how to manage deployments and perform updates with minimal downtime. In addition to this, you will explore operational aspects of Kubernetes , such as monitoring and logging, later moving on to advanced concepts such as container security and cluster federation. You'll get to grips with integrating your build pipeline and deployments within a Kubernetes cluster, and be able to understand and interact with open source projects. In the concluding chapters, you'll orchestrate updates behind the scenes, avoid downtime on your cluster, and deal with underlying cloud provider instability within your cluster.

By the end of this book, you'll have a complete understanding of the Kubernetes platform and will start deploying applications on it.

  • Download, install, and configure the Kubernetes code base
  • Set up and access monitoring and logging for Kubernetes clusters
  • Set up external access to applications running in the cluster
  • Learn how to manage and scale kubernetes with hosted platforms on AWS, Azure, and GCP
  • Run multiple clusters and manage them from a single control plane
  • Discover top tools for deploying and managing a Kubernetes cluster
  • Learn how to get production ready and harden Kubernetes operations, networking, and storage

Getting Started with Kubernetes is for developers, system administrators, and DevOps engineers who want to automate the deployment process and scale their applications. No prior knowledge of Kubernetes is required.

About the Author

Jonathan Baier is an emerging technology leader living in Brooklyn, New York. He has had a passion for technology since an early age. When he was 14 years old, he was so interested in the family computer (an IBM PCjr) that he pored over the several hundred pages of BASIC and DOS manuals. Then, he taught himself to code a very poorly-written version of Tic-Tac-Toe. During his teenage years, he started a computer support business. Throughout his life, he has dabbled in entrepreneurship. He currently works as Senior Vice President of Cloud Engineering and Operations for Moody's corporation in New York. Jesse White is a 15-year veteran and technology leader in New York City's very own Silicon Alley, where he is a pillar of the vibrant engineering ecosystem. As founder of DockerNYC and an active participant in the open source community, you can find Jesse at a number of leading industry events, including DockerCon and VelocityConf, giving talks and workshops.
