Discovering the power of ReplicaSets


Discovering the power of ReplicaSets

A ReplicaSet’s purpose is to maintain a stable set of replica Pods running at any given time. As such, it is often used to guarantee the availability of a specified number of identical Pods.

This lab introduces you to ReplicaSets and explores some important ReplicaSet usage techniques and features. The instructions in this lab closely follow the text of Chapter 9, “ReplicaSets," in the book Kubernetes: Up and Running, third edition.

In this lab, you will learn how to:

    ☐ Create, read, update, and delete a ReplicaSet
    ☐ Inspect a ReplicaSet
    ☐ Scale Pods in a ReplicaSet
    ☐ Quarantine a Pod in a ReplicaSet

If you are not familiar with the basics of Pods, then explore the Kubernetes Fundamentals: Pods lab before learning about ReplicaSets.
