Kubernetes Operators: Extending the Enterprise Container Platform
Wood, Joshua, Jarvinen, Ryan
This practical book shows you how to use Operators to install some of the most essential core services on Kubernetes clusters with automated management and upgrades. Items such as permanent storage and databases can be complex to run on Kubernetes, because they often have their own notions of storage, networking, and clustering. Authors Josh Wood and Paul Bert explain how Operators know how to configure serious apps to work on your cluster, and how to keep them running over time, including upgrading them between versions.
