Basic features you will also do the below Create a pod with a single container and a single port Create a replica set Create a service to load balanace Create a Deployment Straight to the point this is a really easy book to follow it gives you ample enough information and labs to get you straight into the doing rather than endless amount of theory and readingI really like Nigel s style and thanks to him I can now continue on with my K8s nowledge and start using it on AWS in my caseI would recommend this and any of Nigel s book to anyone because they cut out the waffle and get straight into the weeds but with enough labs to hammer home the pointThanks Nigel Being newish into DevOps and being exposed to Docker I was very interested in trying a uicker hands on approach to KubernetesThis book gave me a good idea of how K8s does orchestration and I liked the style it is presented inA few things slowed me down though I tried the examples out on a development Mac with minikube and all went well until 1 I see example configuration files split across page boundaries since yml is VERY sensitive to spacing it s easy to get it wrong had to change the font size of the reader to see the entire file s contents for indentation purposes In this regard JSON format may have been superior but I guess it s less prevalent2 Chapter 6 when I couldn t access the nodes IP address as per the instructions only much later in the chapter is it made clear that you have use the minikube IP and not directly as shown in the text and images Looking at the screenshots didn t help either they use an IP address that does not match the Aspects of South African Literature kubectl command outputs eg screenshots show 50X and theubectl outputs show 100X3 Chapter6 images 611 612 do not seem to match the text which indicates the service label changes to switch replica sets only the arrows are different I expected to see the version labels in the Service boxes as well unless I don t understand how this worksOverall I can still heartily recommend this book Great book if you want to learn about KubernetesSimple explanation of concepts and will allow you to to expand on this nowledge. D real world securityYou'll learn Kubernetes architecture How to build Kubernetes How to deploy and manage applications on Kubernetes How to secure Kubernetes The meaning of terms such as; cloud native microservices desired state containerized and Finally Kubernetes and cloud technologies are developing fast That's why this book will be updated at least once per year meaning it's always up to date with the latest versions of Kubernetes and the latest trends in the cloud native ecosystem.
I read through this book and found it a good insight into ubernetes It allowed me to start understanding the fundamental structures in a simplified manner of all the ubernetes objects and how they hang or interact with each other It s a good place to start But you will need to go on and study advance in depth subjects else where Feels unfinished Covers the basics reasonably well but suffers greatly when it comes to covering features which make Kubernetes so desirable in a production scenario ie pod autoscaling cluster autoscaling DaemonSets service meshes RBAC etc Diagrams are also unreadable on Kindle I hate to leave bad reviews given the amount of effort that goes into making a book like this but this one is altogether too superficial and verbose to recommendIt provides basic coverage of installing 8s and the essential concepts of pods services replica sets and deploymentsThere s no real advice on how to actually use Dream Save Do: Life is Short, Live Your Dream k8s in the real world which is very disappointing things like autoscaling are not even mentioned there s no suggested guidance for naming labelling pods services etc to cope with prod vs staging environments no coverage of things like helm sidecar containers service meshes secret management etc etcIts also laboured and wordy at points often repeating the exact same thing in almost the exact same words a mere paragraph or two after it was first brought up Some parts could be literally a third the length for no reduction in actual content with masses of unannotated at least inindle edition and verbose yaml that doesn t really help clarify things and would be better presented at the end of each chapter as a complete exampleSorry but I really didn t get on with it With some nowledge of Containers I was looking for a book to understand the basic concepts of Kubernetes First one I got was rubbish but this one completely satisfied my need Further it took only about 2 hours to read With the concepts planted in the head I can now dig into the details It is a very uick to read very amusing bookVery fast gives the hints you need to see why Kubernetes is so popular and practicalIt is very well April 2021 editionEvery page and every example updated to the latest versions of Kubernetes and the latest trends in the cloud native ecosystemContainers have revolutionized the way build share and run applications But like all good things they come with their own set of challenges This is where Kubernetes enters the sceneKubernetes helps you deploy and manage containerized applications at scale It abstracts the underlying infrastructure so that you don't need to care whether you're dep.
Pdated It talks about the google GKE autoscaling for containers that is still in betaWas something I wanted to now about GoodI already Modern English in Action (Level 12) knew about Docker and Docker swarm so for me it was a uick Win So fast so furious This is a good introduction but needed examples especially in the security sections Last 2 chapters in security felt rushed and didn t flow with the book leading myself to just speed read through them Some spelling mistakes and differences in the book and actual output to the commands on screen is distracting This is not as good material wise as the docker deep dive book which I found to be excellent TL DRGood book for only the basics ofubernetes Buy it on Nature-Inspired Metaheuristic Algorithms kindle as you will not use it after the first readDon t buy if you have watched the course on Plural sightFull versionFirstly the book itself is great as a getting started guide on Kubernetes It takes you through creating your first sets of resources and gives a clear indication of how you could set this up in different situations As a first timer inubernetes it is good Its easy to follow and easy to readFor those who care even the paper is great uality Its nice and thickNow for the not so goodThis book is just the basics Great for getting started but you will very uickly out grow it Although that is exactly what the book is for I would suggest buying it on The Alchemical Mandala A Survey of the Mandala in the Western Esoteric Traditions kindle and make a few notes if you really want I suspect that once you have finished reading it you most likely will never pick it up againIt does not cover Kubernetes in production in anyway or formIf you have watched the Plural sight course also produced by the Author then don t bother buying the book Rather just go look at the transcript of the course and you will have 80% of the book in there Also the course work in the Plural sight course is EXACTLY the same as the book This book is an extension of reach for the course Inow this because I bought the book after watching the course in a hope that it went deeper and explained about Kubernetes It doesn tOver view of the material that you will learn Install minikube look at installing in AWS using KOPS and look as GKE Using the most.
