Managing Kubernetes Performance at Scale

Book description

The potential to bring ideas to market faster has certainly opened the floodgates to Kubernetes adoption. But today’s containerized applications still introduce enough complexity to challenge even the best of teams. With this practical ebook, Kubernetes administrators and systems architects will examine common challenges and operational tips for running Kubernetes clusters in production.

Two professionals from Turbonomic, the US-based enterprise cloud and virtualization software company, provide best practices and share field-tested experience for Kubernetes day 2 operations and beyond. You’ll learn how to confront the problems you might face with performance and application health in a Kubernetes environment. You’ll also understand the conditions that could cause operational outages and failures down the line.

  • Identify and mitigate day-to-day challenges to Kubernetes environments and performance
  • Dive into challenges and operational oddities that occur in live production environments
