In 2015 Docker and some other leaders in container technologies created the OCI (Open Container Initiative) to define :
docker image build is probably the best known to create a container image. However on top of Docker there are other tools that know how to build an image (how to structure its filesystem and provide the associated metadata) so that it conforms to the image specification.
In this article we will illustrate the usage of 3…
As I used (and will use) the VotingApp in other articles to illustrate different kind of container’s related technologies, I will present here the whole application and the enhancements that have been done recently. I’ll just reference this article from other ones to avoid too much duplication.
The VotingApp is a demo microservices application created by Docker, it is mainly used to illustrate Docker and Kubernetes functionalities. Basically, it allows a user to vote from a web interface and to see the results from another one.
When I deliver Docker trainings, I usually provide each participant an Ubuntu VM and ask them to install Docker using the following command:
$ curl -sSL https://get.docker.com | sh
The output of this command has slightly changed with Docker 20.10 as it now provides information on how to run Docker in rootless mode, which means having a Docker daemon running with the current user instead of root. In this article we will see how this can be done and what this implies.
Using Multipass we create a Ubuntu VM named
docker and get a shell in that one:
A lot has happened in the k0s environment since I wrote my first article about k0s a couple of months ago. In this new article, we will first show the simplified setup of a single node cluster, next we will illustrate the usage of k0sctl, a k0s’ companion tool which sets up a multi-nodes cluster in a very easy way.
k0s make the creation of a single-node cluster even more simple thanks to the introduction of a
--single flag in version 0.12. …
In companies with high security constraints, it might be needed to install a Kubernetes cluster on machines without any internet access. This means all the things needed to set up the cluster must be downloaded beforehand from another machine and then copied over to the Air-Gap machines in a secure way (for instance with a USB key thus through a physical access to the machine).
In this short article, we will see how k0s manages the Air Gap installation. This feature has been added in k0s 0.12 (mars 2021). …
If you are a developer, chances are you have already been asked to deploy your applications on a Kubernetes cluster. You have probably figured out this is not an easy task, especially if you don’t know Kubernetes that much. Kubernetes is a huge beast, and knowing how to define (YAML all the way) and manipulate the basic resources it offers (Pod, Deployment, Service, ConfigMap, Secret, …) is not straightforward, left alone the more advanced resources (NetworkPolicies, RBAC related ones, …).
Today there is no doubt Kubernetes is the solution of choice to run containerized applications. But, as a developer, most…
In this article we will use the VotingApp, a sample microservices application, and deploy it in Kubernetes using different approaches and tools. We will see the particularities of each so you can have a good idea which one is the most appropriate for your needs.
ℹ️ If you do not know the VotingApp, please check this short article presenting the application and its different versions.
In the following parts we will setup a single node k0s Kubernetes cluster and show how to deploy the different versions of the VotingApp using raw…
In a previous article, we presented Rook and used it to set up a HA Ceph cluster. In this new article, we will install Rook on a single node K3s cluster as it’s a good way to get started with this great CNCF project.
Cilium, the eBPF-based networking solution, just released a web editor to facilitate the creation of Kubernetes network policies. In this article, we will demo the tool and use it to define a sample network policy.
“Cilium is an open source project that has been designed on top of eBPF to address the networking, security, and visibility requirements of container workloads. It provides a high-level abstraction on top of eBPF.” — Cilium blog
Cilium has a wide application domain and is commonly used as a CNI plugin in Kubernetes, as illustrated in the following schema:
