Kubernetes is a container ochastration solution that can help you manage deploy solutions to your datacenter. Minikube is a small instance of Kubernetes that you can run locally on your system and is much simpler to install. This allows everyday folks to learn more about kubernetes without having to spend a ton of money on hardware or paying for a cloud provider. In this article, I will stand up a minikube instance on my development laptop and deploy a test application to it.
Kubernetes has come a long way since I first wrote an article about installing it using CoreOS. Back then if you were installing Kubernetes on your own bare-metal you didn’t really have an option for ingress routing. Now we have this option and others. In this article I will be installing Kubernetes on an Ubuntu 16.04 VM using conjure-up. If you’re new to Kubernetes then this post will fill in some of the blanks that the Ubuntu documentation doesn’t cover.
Kubernetes 1.4 was released Sept. 26, 2016 and included several new features. One interesting addition is the expanded stateful application support using Helm Charts. In this post, we will deploy a MongoDB instance to Kubernetes using this new feature of Kubernetes 1.4.
Kubernetes 1.4 was released today with many new setup and usability enhancements. Kubernetes has received much fanfare since its release to general availability in July of 2015. The latest release adds many new features that will a lot of admins will appreciate.
In the last post I covered how to configure an ETCD2 server and a Kubernetes master server. This post will wrap things up by describing how to configure the Kubernetes worker server and deploy a couple applications on our new cluster. If you havn’t read the first post yet, then go through it because all of the steps in this post depend on the steps in that post being completed.
