Elastic (ELK) Stack – Get Started

Kubernetes : two different OCI runtimes

By | DevOps, Kubernetes | No Comments

Quick recap : in the previous episode, we have seen how to move from a Kubernetes cluster powered by Docker into a future-proof Kubernetes cluster, using containerd. Now let’s move on and fully enjoy the power of having this CRI intermediate layer sitting below the kubelet. containerd and OCI runtimes containerd is a high level container runtime. It is CRI compliant, CRI being the API from Kubernetes for container runtimes. Here below a good picture of…

Deploy a Kubernetes cluster using Ansible in AWS

By | Ansible, AWS, DevOps, Docker, Kubernetes | No Comments

After more than 2 years of experience in Kubernetes cluster administration, I am deeply convinced that one of the most important things to have as an ops guy is a sandbox cluster at your disposal. This can be either a sleeping cluster or a new fresh installation with all your standards replicated on it to perform your series of tests. In this blog post, we consider that you have an AWS account with limited credits,…

Reduce the complexity: be sharing and open source

By | Cloud, DevOps | No Comments

By Franck Pachot . I thought that my last post on this blog was the previous one but I blog when it comes to my mind – nothing planned. And two things got me to write this.

K8s on Windows/VirtualBox

By | Kubernetes, Postgres | No Comments

By Franck Pachot . This is a little demo, easy to copy-paste, if you want to play with Kubernetes on your laptop. And, not a simple “Hello World” but a real database running here, able to scale up and down with full availability. Install Virtualbox I use Oracle VirtuaBox because I’m a big fan of Oracle products, especially when they are good and free. However, you can use Hyper-V (then just skip this paragraph and…
