Kubernetes resources

Kubernetes resource list

Kubernetes and Microservices go hand in hand. Basically you don’t want to do one without the other. Kubernetes is a container orchestration software. When you build a system based on the Microservice architecture you need a way to package and run those microservices on the cloud.

The traditional way of preparing a machine by running scripts which download software and prepare a server environment to run your applications are over. It is far easier to roll your Microservices up into a container with all of it’s requirements and then deploy the container.

However, once you get all of your microservices into containers you need a way for them to find each other and work together as a team to form a larger application. This is where Kubernetes comes in. With Kubernetes you use YAML files to describe your system and how you would like your system to be maintained. Once you describe your system Kubernetes works hard to keep it in the way you describe it.

Kubernetes monitors your Microservice containers. When one crashes Kubernetes fires up another. When traffic is too much for a single Microservice node Kubernetes fires up another identical node and load balances the requests, when traffic reduces Kubernetes reduces the identical node count. Kubernetes is a dream come true for Microservice based applications.

Kubernetes is highly complex and takes a lot of time to master. That is why I suggest using Openshift. Openshift interacts with the Kubernetes api for you which makes everything much easier. You should still have a basic understanding of Kubernetes since Openshift is built on top of Kubernetes. OpenShift is one of the final links in the modern DevOps pipleline. Here is a link to more resources and information about OpenShift.

This video contains useful information about Kubernetes, Microservices and Launching a Microservice based application with Kubernetes. The beginning of this video starts out explaining how the traditional Monolithic architecture worked. It then moves onto how Microservice architectures work and continues by providing a comparison of the two. At ~22:45 the video starts to talk about deploying with Kubernetes
