Storage Quotas in Kubernetes

One thing since we released Pure Service Orchestrator I get asked is, “How do we control how much developer/user can deploy?” I played around with some of the settings from the K8s documentation for quotas and limits. I uploaded these into my gists on GitHub. git clone git@gist.github.com:d0fba9495975c29896b98531b04badfd.git #create the namespace as a cluster-admin kubectl create -f […]

Getting Started with Helm for K8s

Over the last few weeks I was setting up Kubernetes in the lab. One thing I quickly learned was managing and editing yaml files for deployments, services and persistent volume claims became confusing and hard. Even when I had things commited in github sometimes I would make edits then not push them then rebuild my […]

Using Snapshots with the Pure Storage Plugin for Kubernetes

One request from customers is not only provision persistent storage for Kubernetes but also integrate into workflows that may need to snap and copy the data for different environments. Much like we do this with powershell or python for SQL and Oracle environments to accelerate development or QA. Pure has enabled snapshots using the Pure […]

Four Resources that Got Me Started with Kuberenetes

In the last post I mentioned there are resources that have already gone through that do a better job than me in helping you understand containers and Kubernetes. So if you are a virtualization admin like me and want to make 2018 the year you know enough to be dangerous I suggest the following resources. […]

Anaconda with Jupyter Notebooks on Kubernetes

WARNING: YAML Heavy post. Sorry. So I have been internally debating the best way to share this latest little thing I was working on/ learning. My goal over 2018 is to post more on migrating applications from virtual to containers managed by K8s. That transition isn’t for everything and has definetley required diving more into […]

Kubernetes Anywhere and PhotonOS Template

Experimenting with Kubernetes to orchestrate and manage containers? If you are like me and already have a lot invested in vSphere (time, infra, knowledge) you might be exctied to use Kubernetes Anywhere to deploy it quickly. I won’t re-write the instruction found here: https://github.com/kubernetes/kubernetes-anywhere It works with Google Compure Engine Azure vSphere The vSphere option […]
