Learn Docker - Fundamentals of Docker 18.x

Learn Docker - Fundamentals of Docker 18.x

Author: Gabriel Nicolas Schenker Format: eBook Release Date: 26/04/2018

Enhance your software deployment workflow using containersKey Features*Get up-and-running with basic to advanced concepts of Docker*Get acquainted with concepts such as Docker containers, Docker images, orchestrators and so on.*Practical test-based approach to learning a prominent containerization toolBook DescriptionDocker containers have revolutionized the software supply chain in small and big enterprises. Never before has a new technology so rapidly penetrated the top 500 enterprises worldwide. Companies that embrace containers and containerize their traditional mission-critical applications have reported savings of at least 50% in total maintenance cost and a reduction of 90% (or more) of the time required to deploy new versions of those applications. Furthermore they are benefitting from increased security just by using containers as opposed to running applications outside containers.This book starts from scratch, introducing you to Docker fundamentals and setting up an environment to work with it. Then we delve into concepts such as Docker containers, Docker images, Docker Compose, and so on. We will also cover the concepts of deployment, orchestration, networking, and security. Furthermore, we explain Docker functionalities on public clouds such as AWS.By the end of this book, you will have hands-on experience working with Docker containers and orchestrators such as SwarmKit and Kubernetes.What you will learn*Containerize your traditional or microservice-based application*Share or ship your application as an immutable container image*Build a Docker swarm and a Kubernetes cluster in the cloud*Run a highly distributed application using Docker Swarm or Kubernetes*Update or rollback a distributed application with zero downtime*Secure your applications via encapsulation, networks, and secrets*Know your options when deploying your containerized app into the cloudWho this book is forThis book is targeted at system administrators, operations engineers, DevOps engineers, and developers or stakeholders who are interested in getting started with Docker from scratch. No prior experience with Docker Containers is required.

Mastering Linux Shell Scripting, A practical guide to Linux command-line, Bash scripting, and Shell programming, 2nd Edition

Author: Mokhtar Ebrahim, Andrew Mallett Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 19/04/2018

Master the complexities of Bash shell scripting and unlock the power of shell for your enterprise Key Features Identify high-level steps such as verifying user input Using the command line and conditional statements in creating/executing simple shell scripts Create and edit dynamic shell scripts to manage complex and repetitive tasks Leverage the command-line to bypass GUI and automate common tasks Book DescriptionIn this book, you'll discover everything you need to know to master shell scripting and make informed choices about the elements you employ. Grab your favorite editor and start writing your best Bash scripts step by step. Get to grips with the fundamentals of creating and running a script in normal mode, and in debug mode. Learn about various conditional statements' code snippets, and realize the power of repetition and loops in your shell script. You will also learn to write complex shell scripts. This book will also deep dive into file system administration, directories, and system administration like networking, process management, user authentications, and package installation and regular expressions. Towards the end of the book, you will learn how to use Python as a BASH Scripting alternative. By the end of this book, you will know shell scripts at the snap of your fingers and will be able to automate and communicate with your system with keyboard expressions. What you will learn Make, execute, and debug your first Bash script Create interactive scripts that prompt for user input Foster menu structures for operators with little command-line experience Develop scripts that dynamically edit web configuration files to produce a new virtual host Write scripts that use AWK to search and reports on log files Draft effective scripts using functions as building blocks, reducing maintenance and build time Make informed choices by comparing different script languages such as Python with BASH Who this book is forIf you are a Linux administrator or a system administrator and are interested in automating tasks in your daily lives, saving time and effort, this book is for you. Basic shell scripting and command-line experience will be required. Familiarity with the tasks you need to automate will be helpful.

Kubernetes for Developers

Kubernetes for Developers

Author: Joseph Heck Format: eBook Release Date: 06/04/2018

A developer's field-guide to designing scalable services using KubernetesKey FeaturesDevelop and run your software using containers within a Kubernetes environmentGet hands-on experience of using Kubernetes with DevOps concepts such as continuous integration, benchmark testing, monitoring, and so onPragmatic example-based approach showing how to use Kubernetes in the development processBook DescriptionKubernetes is documented and typically approached from the perspective of someone running software that has already been built. Kubernetes may also be used to enhance the development process, enabling more consistent testing and analysis of code to help developers verify not only its correctness, but also its efficiency. This book introduces key Kubernetes concepts, coupled with examples of how to deploy and use them with a bit of Node.js and Python example code, so that you can quickly replicate and use that knowledge.You will begin by setting up Kubernetes to help you develop and package your code. We walk you through the setup and installation process before working with Kubernetes in the development environment. We then delve into concepts such as automating your build process, autonomic computing, debugging, and integration testing. This book covers all the concepts required for a developer to work with Kubernetes.By the end of this book, you will be in a position to use Kubernetes in developmentecosystems.What you will learn Build your software into containers Deploy and debug software running in containers within Kubernetes Declare and add configuration through Kubernetes Define how your application fits together, using internal and external services Add feedback to your code to help Kubernetes manage your services Monitor and measure your services through integration testing and in production deploymentsWho this book is forIf you are a full-stack or back-end software developers interested, curious, or being asked to test as well as run the code you're creating, you can leverage Kubernetes to make that process simpler and consistent regardless of where you deploy. If you're looking for developer focused examples in NodeJS and Python for how to build, test, deploy, and run your code with Kubernetes, this is perfect for you.
