Create a Kubernetes cluster with Google Kubernetes Engine

By | Database Administration & Monitoring, DevOps, Docker, Kubernetes | No Comments

Nowadays the market for cloud providers is very competitive. Large companies are fighting a very hard battle over the services they provide. Each offers a wide range of more or less identical products with specific features for each. In my point of view, having deployed Kubernetes clusters in several environments (Cloud and On-Premise), I pay particular attention to Google Cloud for its Google Kubernetes Engine offer. The deployment of a Kubernetes cluster is very fast…

Kubernetes DNS resolution using CoreDNS (force update deployment)

By | DevOps, Docker, Kubernetes | No Comments

After installing your Kubernetes cluster composed by masters and workers, a few configurations steps need to complete. In fact, the join command is not the last operation to perform, in order to have a fully operational cluster. See how to deploy a k8s cluster using kubeadm here: https://blog.dbi-services.com/kubernetes-how-to-install-a-single-master-cluster-with-kubeadm/ . One of the most important steps in the configuration is the name resolution (DNS) within the k8s cluster. In this blog post, we will see how…

Using non-root SQL Server containers on Docker and K8s

By | Database Administration & Monitoring, DevOps, Docker, Kubernetes, SQL Server | No Comments

This is something that I waited for a while, in fact since SQL Server 2017 … and the news came out on Wednesday 09th September 2019. Running Non-Root SQL Server Containers is now possible either on the next version of SQL Server (2019) and it has been backported on SQL Server 2017 as well. Non-root SQL Server containers will likely be part of hidden gem of SQL Server new features, but this is definitely a…

How to get a big picture of K8s pods and PVs by script

By | Database Administration & Monitoring, DevOps, Docker, Kubernetes | No Comments

A couple of weeks ago, during an internal dbi services workshop about Docker and K8s, I got an interesting question: is it possible to get a big picture of pods connected to one specific persistent volume (PV) by using kubectl command? It was an interesting question because if we go through the usual kubectl command, it doesn’t provide natively the desired output. In fact, one one hand we get information about PVs and their related…

Debugging SQL Server containers considerations

By | Database Administration & Monitoring, Docker, SQL Server | No Comments

When it comes to troubleshooting processes or to get a deeper look of how SQL Server works internally , I always used debugging tools as windbg on Windows and since SQL Server is available on Linux, I switched to strace tool. But let’s add containers in the game now. I didn’t want to touch any based image for applications including SQL Server with debugging tools added. So, my concern was to figure out how to…

Deploying SQL Server 2019 container on RHEL 8 with podman

By | Database Administration & Monitoring, DevOps, Docker, SQL Server | No Comments

Having a fresh install of RHEL8 on my lab environment, I was curious to take a look at new containerization stuff from Red Hat in the context of SQL Server 2019. Good chances are the future version of SQL Server should be available and supported on with the latest version of Red Hat but for now this blog post is purely experimental. This time I wanted to share with you some thoughts about the new…
