The way developers design, build, and run software has changed significantly with the evolution of microservices and containers. These modern architectures use new primitives that require a different set of practices than most developers, tech leads, and architects are accustomed to. With this focused guide, Bilgin Ibryam and Roland Huß from Red Hat provide common reusable elements, patterns, principles, and practices for designing and implementing cloud-native applications on Kubernetes.
Each pattern includes a description of the problem and a proposed solution with Kubernetes specifics. Many patterns are also backed by concrete code examples. This book is ideal for developers already familiar with basic Kubernetes concepts who want to learn common cloud-native patterns.
You’ll learn about the following pattern categories:
- Foundational patterns cover the core principles and practices for building container-based cloud-native applications.
- Behavioral patterns explore finer-grained concepts for managing various types of container and platform interactions.
- Structural patterns help you organize containers within a pod, the atom of the Kubernetes platform.
- Configuration patterns provide insight into how application configurations can be handled in Kubernetes.
- Advanced patterns cover more advanced topics such as extending the platform with operators.
