Software-Defined Storage Solutions for Kubernetes

Software Defined Storage for Kubernetes

According to Gartner, 50% of global enterprises will be running containers in production by the year 2020. By that time, over 20% of enterprise storage capacity will be allocated to container workloads, compared to only 1% today. Moving to containers, however, presents new challenges for storage provisioning. In particular, using traditional storage solutions for distributed […]

Making Sense of Taints and Tolerations in Kubernetes

Taints and tolerations in Kubernetes

In the earlier tutorial, you learned how to assign Pods to nodes in Kubernetes using nodeSelector  and affinity features. As we tried to demonstrate, affinity is a great feature for such use cases as creating dedicated nodes, distributing Pods evenly across the cluster or co-locating Pods on the same machine. In this tutorial, we’ll discuss Kubernetes […]

Learn How to Assign Pods to Nodes in Kubernetes Using nodeSelector and Affinity Features

Affinity in Kubernetes

As we’ve already discussed in our earlier tutorials, Kubernetes administrators normally don’t need to choose a node to which their Pods should be scheduled. Instead, the selection of the appropriate node(s) onto which to schedule their Pods is handled by the Kubernetes scheduler. Automatic node selection prevents users from selecting unhealthy nodes or nodes with […]

Introduction to Istio Service Mesh for Kubernetes

Istio service mesh for Kubernetes

Modern cloud-native applications are moving away from the monolithic architecture approach toward microservices architecture in which an application is split into multiple loosely coupled parts (referred to as microservices) that have shared communication interfaces, access control rules, and security policies. Microservices might be written in different programming languages, they might have multiple instances and versions […]

Exporting Kubernetes Logs to Elasticsearch Using Fluent Bit

Fluent Bit on Kubernetes

In a previous tutorial, we discussed how to create a cluster-level logging pipeline using Fluentd log aggregator. As you learned, Fluentd is a powerful log aggregator that supports log collection from multiple sources and sending them to multiple outputs. In this article, we’ll continue the overview of available logging solutions for Kubernetes focusing on the Fluent […]

Deploying Traefik as Ingress Controller for Your Kubernetes Cluster

Traefik in Kubernetes

You might already know from our previous tutorials about how to use Kubernetes Services to load balance traffic between multiple backends. In the production environment, however, we might also need to control external traffic going to our cluster from the Internet. This is precisely what Ingress does! The main purpose of Ingress is to expose […]

Introduction to the Supergiant 2.0.0 Analyze Tool

Supergiant Analyze: Introduction

K8s clusters are complex and dynamic environments where nodes and application exist in a constant state of flux. Supergiant Capacity and Supergiant Analyze are two components of the Supergiant 2.0.0 toolkit that help K8s administrators manage this complexity. While Supergiant Capacity enables intelligent auto-scaling of nodes to reduce infrastructure costs, this is just one part […]
