Now that you understand how Kubernetes works, you’ll appreciate the importance of containers as building blocks. This course explores how to construct containers to behave as first class citizens on Kubernetes. There are frameworks in various languages to construct microservice based apps. There are best practices for loading apps with a variety of languages into a container. Jonathan will help you navigate the goals of the Distillation pattern as you develop containers. We will conclude by reviewing the techniques and best practices for adding containers to Pods so Kubernetes can run them securely and efficiently.
This course is part of the larger 3 part series with a total of 9 weeks of Kubernetes topics. These online trainings get you started then productive with the best de facto operating system for distributed cloud computing.
Distributed application architectures are hard. The complexity in building containers and designing microservices to work together across a network can be overwhelming. To successfully manage limitations on resources, failing networks, defective software, and fluctuating traffic, you need an orchestrator.
Kubernetes is designed to handle these complexities, so you don’t have to. Essentially a distributed operating system for your data center, you give Kubernetes containers, and it makes sure that they remain available and responsive. As such, Kubernetes is quickly becoming the preferred way to serve distributed, scalable, and resilient applications.
Jonathan Johnson walks you through Kubernetes building blocks to demonstrate how the tool actually works. You may already understand containers—the tricky part is getting a whole set of containers and services to consistently work together and run reliably. In this three-part series, you’ll get comfortable designing, deploying, managing, and updating a coordinated set of applications running on Kubernetes.
