- Be able to understand, deploy and administer Kubernetes Platform
- Create Docker container images for web applications
- Create a multi-node, production grade Kubernetes Cluster with High Availability
- Create, Run and Manage Docker Containers at Cloud scale in a Kubernetes Cluster
- Horizontally scale each microservices application, on demand and expose the microservice using a load balancer service.
- Upgrade, downgrade applications running in a live production system using Kubernetes
- Rollback to the previous working version of the application, if there was any problem with the upgrade.
- Perform server maintenance activities in a live production Kubernetes Cluster, without any application downtime.
Our goal is to create a 3 node Kubernetes Cluster. In this video, we'll create 3 Virtual Machines - one VM would function as a Kubernetes Master Node and the remaining two VM's would function as Kubernetes Worker Nodes.
We'll use the Google Cloud Platform to create the 3 Ubuntu Virtual Machines.
When you build a 3 node cluster with one master and two worker nodes, the pods will be distributed between the two worker nodes.
You'll notice a problem when you try to refresh the browser or poll the URL multiple times, similar to what the script does.
This problem has something to do with the networking in the Kubernetes.
This is because I use the IP address of one of the worker nodes as the load-balancer external IP address. So the pods running in that worker node would respond, but the pods running in the other worker node couldn't be reached. Eventhough the IP addresses of both worker nodes are pingable from each other.
This seems to be a bug in the Kubernetes Calico CNI driver.
To workaround this problem, I drained and brought down the other worker node, so that all pods run in the worker node who's IP address has been assigned to the load-balancer service. This will enable the load balancer to talk to all pods.
This is just to clarify the issue and make you be aware of the issue. Hope you could work around it when you try it on your own.
- Some Basic Understanding on Linux
- We cover from the very basics - From Virtual Machines to Docker Containers to Kubernetes
