Kubectl - A cookbook

Become a Master Chef of Kubernetes management through a series of recipes, tips, and tricks

About the Book

Kubernetes has changed the way we deploy and manage applications. It is an open-source platform for managing containerized applications and simplifies the configuration and automation processes of modern applications. Docker brought Linux containers to the mainstream making it easy for organizations to build, distribute, and deploy applications. Kubernetes is playing a similar role in simplifying the management and orchestration of large cloud-native applications. It is THE new wave that is critical to both IT professionals and developers. You need to be a part of this wave to take advantage of career prospects it offers.

While Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Kubernetes clusters do exist, the managed Kubernetes cluster services from vendors such as Microsoft, Google, AWS, DigitalOcean, and other infrastructure service providers made it easy to provision and manage clusters for your containerized workloads. Whether it is a DIY cluster or a managed cluster, there is a consistent way of managing it via the command line. The kubectl command-line tool talks to the standard management API that any Kubernetes cluster provides and this tool has been the most preferred way of managing clusters and workloads.

This book, Kubectl - A cookbook, provides a series of recipes, tips, and tricks to help you master the command line management via kubectl. Each chapter is designed to focus on a specific aspect of Kubernetes management and combines the knowledge from earlier chapters. Each chapter and each recipe offers an opportunity to learn not just Kubernetes management but also a few intricate details about shell scripting as well.
