Effectively containerize applications, integrate enterprise systems, and scale applications in your enterprise
After years of disappointment encountering "complete" guides to using Kubernetes in enterprise environments which ultimately fell short - we decided to write one ourselves!
The book begins by introducing you to Docker and Kubernetes fundamentals, including a review of basic Kubernetes objects. You'll then get to grips with containerization and understand its core functionalities, including how to create ephemeral multinode clusters using kind. As you make progress, you'll learn about cluster architecture, Kubernetes cluster deployment, and cluster management, and get started with application deployment. Moving on, you'll find out how to integrate your container to a cloud platform and integrate tools including MetalLB, externalDNS, OpenID connect (OIDC), pod security policies (PSPs), Open Policy Agent (OPA), Falco, and Velero. Finally, you will discover how to deploy an entire platform to the cloud using continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD).
Kubernetes and Docker - An Enterprise Guide is perfect for anyone looking to advance their knowledge of DevOps and containerization and apply new concepts across an enterprise. Lessons are designed to appeal to any level of expertise, from those just learning Kubernetes to experienced DevOps Engineers.
