With Docker, CoreOS Linux, and Other Platforms
Take container cluster management to the next level; learn how to administer and configure Kubernetes on CoreOS; and apply suitable management design patterns such as Configmaps, Autoscaling, elastic resource usage, and high availability. Some of the other features discussed are logging, scheduling, more » rolling updates, volumes, service types, and multiple cloud provider zones.The atomic unit of modular container service in Kubernetes is a Pod, which is a group of containers with a common filesystem and networking. The Kubernetes Pod abstraction enables design patterns for containerized applications similar to object-oriented design patterns. Containers provide some of the same benefits as software objects such as modularity or packaging, abstraction, and reuse. CoreOS Linux is used in the majority of the chapters and other platforms discussed are CentOS with OpenShift, Debian 8 (jessie) on AWS, and Debian 7 for Google Container Engine. CoreOS is the main focus becayse Docker is pre-installed on CoreOS out-of-the-box. CoreOS: * Supports most cloud providers (including Amazon AWS EC2 and Google Cloud Platform) and virtualization platforms (such as VMWare and VirtualBox) * Provides Cloud-Config for declaratively configuring for OS items such as network configuration (flannel), storage (etcd), and user accounts * Provides a production-level infrastructure for containerized applications including automation, security, and scalability * Leads the drive for container industry standards and founded appc * Provides the most advanced container registry, Quay Docker was made available as open source in March 2013 and has become the most commonly used containerization platform. Kubernetes was open-sourced in June 2014 and has become the most widely used container cluster manager. The first stable version of CoreOS Linux was made available in July 2014 and since has become one of the most commonly used operating system for containers. What You'll Learn * Use Kubernetes with Docker * Create a Kubernetes cluster on CoreOS on AWS * Apply cluster management design patterns * Use multiple cloud provider zones * Work with Kubernetes and tools like Ansible * Discover the Kubernetes-based PaaS platform OpenShift * Create a high availability website * Build a high availability Kubernetes master cluster * Use volumes, configmaps, services, autoscaling, and rolling updates * Manage compute resources * Configure logging and scheduling Who This Book Is For Linux admins, CoreOS admins, application developers, and container as a service (CAAS) developers. Some pre-requisite knowledge of Linux and Docker is required. Introductory knowledge of Kubernetes is required such as creating a cluster, creating a Pod, creating a service, and creating and scaling a replication controller. For introductory Docker and Kubernetes information, refer to Pro Docker (Apress) and Kubernetes Microservices with Docker (Apress). Some pre-requisite knowledge about using Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2, CloudFormation, and VPC is also required. « less

Create, modify, and run your own PaaS with modularized containers using Docker
Docker is a great tool in many ways for developers and people in DevOps. We begin by learning how easy it is to create and publish your own customized Docker images and making them available to everyone. We also see how practical it is to separate every service to its own container. When you have more » published separated service containers, the process of running all kinds of platforms in the same server is a walk in the park. This book walks you through a use case project that will teach you how to customize and create your own Docker image, allowing you to run any platform you want. The project evolves throughout the book and emerges as a complete three containers Wordpress/MySQL platform when finished. By the end of the book, you will know how to create such a container on a Wordpress/MySQL platform, among others. « less
