In this article, Dealing with Data and Communication in Kubernetes. I will show you how you can set up a local Kubernetes cluster using minikube. MySQL, Redis, and Kafka will be deployed using Helm — a package manager for Kubernetes applications.
From using minikube for a local development environment setup to launching your own blog applicationSome time ago I did an online course on Udemy called “ Microservices Software Architecture: Patterns and Techniques”. In this course, the instructor greatly describes the main challenges that come with microservice architecture and possible solutions. While going through the lessons about Service Registration, Service Discovery, Failover Mechanism, and Health API, I thought, “Thank, God, we have Kubernetes that gives us most of those solutions out of the box, so that we can focus on implementing our business logic.”
Even though you get much from Kubernetes, there are some aspects of a microservice architecture that you need to address in any case yourself. One of the most important ones being Data and Communication, which addresses the following questions:
How do you store your data?
How do services exchange this data?
In this article, I will show you how you can set up a local Kubernetes cluster using minikube. By implementing a very basic example I am going to describe how to deal with data and communication in a microservice architecture.
Our original Kubernetes tool list was so popular that we've curated another great list of tools to help you improve your functionality with the platform.
Kubernetes is not just about Microservices. If you create a poll and ask your IT friends which is the most common buzzword tech topic, I’d bet 50% of them would bring up microservice.
Learn Serverless developer experience on Kubernetes with Knative and Apache Kafka. With its scalable and distributed design, Apache Kafka is a good fit for platforms like Kubernetes. Knative, on the other hand, is a Kubernetes-based platform that comes with a set of building blocks to build, deploy, and manage modern serverless workloads.
This article explains how you can leverage Kubernetes to reduce multi cloud complexities and improve stability, scalability, and velocity.
In this article, take a look at the service mesh in the microservices world. The software industry has come a long journey and throughout this journey, Software Architecture has evolved a lot. Starting with 1-tier (Single-node), 2-tier (Client/ Server), 3-tier, and Distributed are some of the Software Architectural patterns we saw in this journey.
