Managing Kubernetes: Operating Kubernetes Clusters in the Real World

With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form — the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes — so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters are available, and the final ebook bundle is released. Kubernetes has greatly simplified the task of deploying containerized applications to the cloud, but if you want to get the most out of this open source orchestrator, you need a dedicated team to manage it on a day-to-day basis. This practical book shows Site Reliability Engineers and DevOps Leads how to build, operate, manage, and upgrade a Kubernetes cluster, whether you’re using cloud infrastructure or bare metal servers. Brendan Burns, co-founder of the Kubernetes platform, and Craig Tracey, Solutions Engineer at Heptio, take you through initial deployment, architectural choices for designing a cluster, monitoring and alerting, managing access control, and upgrading Kubernetes. By diving deep into Kubernetes management, your organization can take full advantage of this orchestrator’s capabilities. Learn how your cluster operates, how developers use it to deploy applications, and how Kubernetes facilitates a developer’s jobAdjust, secure, and tune your cluster by understanding Kubernetes’ APIs and configuration optionsDetect when things in the cluster break, and learn the steps necessary to respond and recover from these problemsDetermine how and when to add libraries, tools, and platforms that build on, extend, or otherwise improve the usage of a Kubernetes cluster
