📖 Kubernetes Best Practices 📖

Hey there,

This week we discuss a couple of kubernetes best practices when it comes to the DaemonService Pattern and the Cron Job Pattern.

Go to blog

Daemon 1

Kubernetes Patterns - The DaemonService Pattern

What's inside:
  • What is a Daemon?
  • Do we need daemons in a Kubernetes cluster?
  • Why not just install the daemon on the node itself?
  • fluentd daemonset for log collection
  • How are DaemonSets different from ReplicaSets?
  • DaemonSet Pods access patterns.

Kubernetes Patterns - The Cron Jon Pattern

What's inside?
  • Scheduled jobs challenges.
  • My Crob job didn't start on time. what should I do?
  • My Cron job is taking too long. 
  • Does Cron job keep a history of the jobs that succeeded and failed?

Driving Digital Transformation Through Kubernetes

Cloud-native applications are fast becoming a necessity for companies implementing digital transformation due to their robustness, scalability and the way that container architecture lends itself to agile development. Being at the forefront of this revolution, containers and microservices have fundamentally changed how companies develop, ship and run applications, providing faster, more cost-effective approaches to developing applications in the cloud.


An unpatched security issue in the Kubernetes API is vulnerable to a “billion laughs” attack

Last week, a potentially serious and unpatched security issue was revealed in the Kubernetes API server GitHub repository by StackRox. The security lapse was due to the parsing of a  Kubernetes API server deployment called YAML (Yet Another Markup Language) which is used for specifying configuration-type information. This security issue makes the cluster’s Kubernetes API service vulnerable to an attack called “billion laughs”. The billion laughs attack is a type of denial-of-service (DoS) attack.


2020: the year containerization dominates PaaS

How will infrastructure evolve and provide the sourcing, migration and delivery of services for today’s digital migration? According to Benjamin Coetzer, Director, Routed – a vendor neutral cloud infrastructure developer – Platform as a Service in conjunction with the rising trend of containerisation, is delivering these answers.


Choose the right container deployment and management system

Containers are only a piece of the puzzle -- they need orchestration to govern their deployment, availability and more. As enterprises map out a strategy for containerized applications, they now face dozens of options in the market. Generally, they all combine container software with some kind of orchestration, and the market has coalesced around a single technology option: Kubernetes.
