Why Kubernetes Is Ideal for Your CI CD #Pipeline

Why Kubernetes Is Ideal for Your CI/CD Pipeline

Kubernetes does for container orchestration what Python and C have done for high-level programming languages. Just as those languages provide users with libraries and abstractions, so they are able to focus on the tasks in front of them without getting bogged down in the complexities of memory management, Kubernetes provides high-level abstractions for container management.

Communication Between Microservices

Moving from a single-server approach to containers is not always easy. But it is possible to set up almost every system to run in containers. A standard web hosting setup, for example, can have PHP and Nginx running in one container and MySQL running in another. Building a system from scratch that takes full advantage […]

Container Registries—A Battle Royale

One of the main advantages of using containers with Kubernetes is continuous availability. Rather than taking the whole system down for an update or maintenance, each container – containing specific microservices – can be replaced on the fly. The way developers do that is by preparing a new container for the updated microservices, setting up […]

Containers are one of the most important concepts in cloud computing. In fact, they have completely reshaped the way that many of us think about and approach virtualization. Containers behave much like virtual machines (VMs), but they are much more flexible and lightweight than a full-blown VM. Because they are so lightweight and flexible, containers […]

Working with Microservices & Kubernetes

The fundamental concept behind a microservices-based architecture is also its biggest advantage. Rather than having a single monolithic app running everything internally, it is possible to set up multiple microservices–each handling its own functions and specific tasks–and have that big lump of an app divided into small, manageable, independently deployable services. The approach allows the […]

The Kubernetes Networking Model

Many web applications today consist of multiple containers, utilizing different Services from different places. Kubernetes effectively streamlines the process of implementing multi-container applications. With Kubernetes, the user can configure features on the container orchestration tool exactly how they want to combine different containers within a single app. Kubernetes then handles the process of rolling them […]
