Every page, and every example, updated to the latest versions of Kubernetes and the latest trends in the cloud-native ecosystem.
Containers 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 scene.
Kubernetes 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 deploying your applications to Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, or your own on-premises datacenter. With Kubernetes, you can develop your applications on your laptop, deploy to your chosen cloud platform, migrate to a different cloud platform, and even migrate to your private cloud at your on-premises datacenter.
The Kubernetes Book starts from the beginning and covers everything you need to know to be proficient with Kubernetes. It even includes two chapters dedicated to threat-modeling Kubernetes and real-world security.
- 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 more...
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.
