Overview Of Kubernetes Cluster

Kubernetes, also known as K8s is an open-source system formulated for automating deployment, scaling, and managing the microservices and application containers. A set of Linux containers with a shared network and storage is the main piece in the K8s model is called a pod. Ingress controlled and network plugins assist internal and external load balancers, whereas, data persistence is automated with pluggable storage backends. Kubernetes kubelet organises pods guaranteeing the cluster remains healthy.

Installing a Kubernetes cluster and network storage configuration is a very mundane and problem-prone procedure. UKHost4u mechanises the Kubernetes installation, configuration, updates, and supplies several extra Kubernetes services and cluster elements;

1. Weave CNI plugin for activating internal networking.

2. CoreDNS as inner DNS.

3. Traefik ingress controller with pre-constructed TLS for external access to services 

4. NFS storage provisioner for creating K8s volumes by default

5. Kubernetes Dashboard to handle and control the cluster using the latest and intuitive web client

6. Helm and Tiller for single-click deployment of hundreds of known applications

7. K9s, kubectx, popeye, and stern command-line to effectively and properly handle your cluster

8. Metrix server, Prometheus, and Grafana for observing the health of your cluster and applications 

9. Jaeger for observing and resolving the microservice centric distributed systems.

Other than K8s specific features, conventional UKHost4u features are present too, for instance, vertical and horizontal scaling.
