Kubernetes Operators: Automating the Container Orchestration Platform

Extend Kubernetes to automate management of the entire application life cycle

Operators serve as a packaging mechanism for distributing applications on Kubernetes–they monitor, maintain, recover, and upgrade the software they deploy. This e-book’s realistic examples show you how operators work and how to build them with the operator framework and software development kit (SDK). In this e-book, you'll learn how to:

  • Deploy an operator on a Kubernetes cluster.
  • Examine operators from usage to implementation.
  • Explore the operator framework, including the operator SDK, operator lifecycle manager, and operator metering.
  • Build, package, and run an operator with the SDK's Go programming language support.
  • Package and deploy existing Helm and Ansible® assets as operators.
  • Distribute operators for installation on Kubernetes clusters.
  • See how operators help you implement site reliability engineering (SRE) practices.
