There are just over 50 standard resource kinds in Kubernetes. The most common resources are Pods. Pods are surrounded with many other supporting resources. This week we look at the variety of Pod objects and how to declare them with the numerous declaration choices. Pods are rich in features and we dedicate this week to these important details. With this knowledge you’ll start to understand how you can start assembling your applications on Kubernetes as a distributed cluster of services.
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.
