Scalability, cost-effectiveness, resource utilization, and light-weight are the reasons behind the replacement of monolithic app infrastructure with modern app infrastructure. The modern app infrastructure model, like a virtual machine, microservice, and containerization, has streamlined the app resources for better usability. The app resources like servers, data storage, networking, application monitoring, and application security services can be utilized properly with minimum maintenance.      Focusing particularly on the containerization model, it has emerged as a way to make software portable and reduce the app delivery time. The multiple containers used to develop an app wraps all the packages you need to run a service. It means application containers embed all the runtime components necessary to execute an application in an isolated environment, including files, libraries, and environment variables.  Kubernetes provides you the orchestration and management capabilities required to deploy containers at scale.  Kubernetes needs to integrate with networking, storage, security, telemetry, and other services to provide a comprehensive container infrastructure. How is Kubernetes used?Orchestrate containers across multiple hostsMake optimum use of hardware and resources needed to run your enterprise appsControl and automate application deployments and updatesAdd a storage system to run stateful apps.Scale containerized applications and their resources in real-timeDeclaratively manage services- ensure applications are running the way you wanted them to runSelf-heal your apps with autoscaling, auto-restart, auto-replication, and auto-placement.To make developers work easy while working with containers, Kubernetes supports some out of the box plugins. 1)  Overlay Network PluginsAn overlay network is a combination of virtual network interfaces, bridges, and routing rules. It enables the Kubernetes pods to communicate back and forth. The overlay network assigns pods IP addresses from a virtual IP address pool. It means a pod is reachable not just within the docker network but is directly addressable from outside the docker network. But as soon as the workload gets more advanced with specific requirements, you may need to consider other solutions like BGP and direct routing instead of overlay networks.Plugins: Calico, Weave, Flannel, Canal (Calico + Flannel), Kube Router, etc. 2)  Cloud-native storageCloud-Native Storage is helpful in creating the containerized stateful applications capable of surviving restarts and outages. Though Kubernetes does provide some basic capabilities to work and integrate with different types of external storage systems, it requires some tool that automates cloud-native storage management, operations, and governance. But these capabilities are not enough to deal with storage provision, management of access, or that of SLAs for different storage types.

Kubernetes provides you the orchestration and management capabilities required to deploy containers at scale.  Kubernetes needs to integrate with networking, storage, security, telemetry, and other services to provide a comprehensive container infrastructure. 

How is Kubernetes used?

  • Orchestrate containers across multiple hosts
  • Make optimum use of hardware and resources needed to run your enterprise apps
  • Control and automate application deployments and updates
  • Add a storage system to run stateful apps.
  • Scale containerized applications and their resources in real-time
  • Declaratively manage services- ensure applications are running the way you wanted them to run
  • Self-heal your apps with autoscaling, auto-restart, auto-replication, and auto-placement.

To make developers work easy while working with containers, Kubernetes supports some out of the box plugins.

 

1)  Overlay Network Plugins

An overlay network is a combination of virtual network interfaces, bridges, and routing rules. It enables the Kubernetes pods to communicate back and forth. The overlay network assigns pods IP addresses from a virtual IP address pool.
