Chapter 11. Running Kubernetes on Multiple Clouds and Cluster Federation
In this chapter we'll take it to the next level, with running on multiple clouds and cluster federation. A Kubernetes cluster is a closely-knit unit where all the components run in relative proximity and are connected by a fast network (a physical data center or cloud provider availability zone). This is great for many use cases, but there are several important use cases where systems need to scale beyond a single cluster. Kubernetes federation is a methodical way to combine multiple Kubernetes clusters and interact with them as a single entity. The topics we will cover include the following:
- A deep dive into what cluster federation is all about
- How to prepare, configure, and ...
