Kubernetes is a great tool to run (Docker) containers in a clustered production environment. When deploying often to production we need fully automated blue-green deployments, which makes it possible to deploy without any downtime. We also need to handle external HTTP requests and SSL offloading. This requires integration with a load balancer like Ha-Proxy. Another concern is (semi) auto scaling of the Kubernetes cluster itself when running in a cloud environment. E.g. partially scale down the cluster at night.
In this technical deep dive you will learn how to setup Kubernetes together with other open source components to achieve a production ready environment that takes code from git commit to production without downtime.
