A few weeks ago, I received a book from Microsoft – “Kubernetes Best Practices: Blueprints for Building Successful Applications on Kubernetes”, authored by Brendan Burns, Edward Villalba, David Strebel and Lachlan Evenson, and in this post, I will review and share my observations and impressions with the #cloud#community.
The key strength of Kubernetes lies in its modularity and versatility. Virtually any type of application you aim to deploy can be accommodated within the Kubernetes framework, and it can handle a wide range of adjustments or optimizations to meet your specific requirements.
However, this adaptability and generality do come with a trade-off – a moderate level of complexity. It’s essential to have a solid grasp of how Kubernetes’ APIs and components function to unlock its full potential for simplifying application development, management, and deployment. Equally critical is understanding how to seamlessly integrate Kubernetes with various external systems, such as on-premise databases and continuous delivery pipelines, to make it a practical solution in real-world scenarios.
Throughout this book, authors strived to offer insights based on real-world experience, covering topics that are likely to be encountered by cloud engineers and developers, whether they are new to Kubernetes or seasoned administrators. Whether you’re exploring a new area to become an expert or seeking a refresher on familiar challenges, authors aim is to facilitate your learning journey.
By following these best practices, you can tap into authors’ collective experience to avoid common pitfalls, enhance performance and security, and gain the confidence to maximize the benefits of Kubernetes.
Thank you for reading my short review of the book, as it looks like a solid resource for real-world endeavors of cloud engineering and development!
