About this book #

Learn how to automate your Kubernetes infrastructure using Ansible. This book will enable you to automate more tasks and save time with this human-readable platform.

Augment your productivity by applying Infrastructure as Code (IaC) as part of infrastructure and operations (I&O) in your multi/hybrid cloud modern infrastructure. Containerized microservices deployed via Kubernetes allow you to save time, reduce human interaction and errors and create more robust world-scale cloud-native applications. Learn how to automate the most redundant activities such as reports, services, launching a pod, adding permanent storage, configuring load balancing, and adding or modifying any Kubernetes parameter. You’ll also look at end-to-end use cases and how advanced cluster automation (Helm packages and plugins, node states, etc.) is moving forward. Each lesson utilizes a specific use case for the modern Kubernetes cluster and focuses on a single module from the most crucial parameter with code demonstrations and real-life usage. Each code example is battle-proven in real-life with console interaction and verification.
