By Mike Metral
Thu, Mar 31, 2016   using tags Basics , Borg

In this segment, we want to take a step back from all of the in-depth technical details, and assess why it is that containers, Kubernetes, and the paradigm it presents, is worth using & integrating into your stack.

Our aim is to provide you with a holistic view of how you should be thinking about and visualizing your infrastructure, and to get to the root of the topic: why does Kubernetes matter?

Happy Pi Day Kubernauts!

In this segment, we will be celebrating & honoring Pi Day by enriching your understanding of the various Volumes types that Kubernetes supports, and how they compare amongst one another.

Welcome Back!

In this installment, we will be covering the third and final component that operates CoreKube, and that is the corekube/cert-renew project that we left out from our initial post: Building CoreKube on Kubernetes - Part #1.

If you haven’t read Part #1 yet, now is a great time to do so!

We plan on covering the corekube/cert-renew project at a fair-length, as well as how we leverage various other components of the Kubernetes project to assist in the renewal of our SSL/TLS certs from LetsEncrypt.org.

CoreKube was built with the intention of educating the container and Kuberentes communities by showcasing the Kubernetes project’s feature-rich environment, including its versatility around design & management of applications, not machines.

We figured that there was no better way to begin this journey than to build, run & manage the CoreKube site on Kubernetes, and to share our experiences & findings with the community.

Since we plan on walking through various topics, we’re going to frame this post as a multi-part series to facilitate following along with both the architecture behind CoreKube, as well as the applied Kubernetes concepts.

Without further ado, let’s begin.
