πŸ—“ Agenda: (Total Duration: 60 – 90 minutes) πŸ—“

⏩ Presentation: 20 Mins
.....β€’ Kubernetes Architecture Overview
..... β€’ Discuss setting up a multi-node Kubernetes Cluster using the kubeadm tool.
..........o Kubeadmphases
..........o Kubeadm command line options.
.....β€’ Walk-through of the scenarios for β€œDay 2: Operations demo”.

⏩ Day 2 Operations: Demo

We will discover what a Kubernetes Administrator would do on a typical day to manage the Kubernetes cloud native infrastructure (i.e. control plane). The setup will be a three-node cluster with One Master and two worker nodes.

.....a. Adding nodes to increase processing capacity: How do I add a node an existing cluster?
.....b. Managing faulty nodes: How do I drain and cordon off a problematic node so that no pods are
scheduled on them?
.....c. Multiple Schedulers: How to I setup and additional scheduler to do specialized scheduling for
specific pods apart from the standard scheduler?
.....d. Rolling Updates and Undo deployments: How to implement rolling updates and potential undo a container rollout due to issues identified mid deployment?
.....e. Setting up static pods: How do I setup static pods to run on specific nodes? How are the control
plane components setup up as static pods and managed by the kubelet?
.....f. Load Balancing and routing- How to route traffic between pods using services?
.....g. Troubleshooting using logs and service status tools: How to Use systemd utils and journalctl
commands to view logs and manage cluster service configuration.
.....h. Pod Placement Strategy: How to leverage Kubernetes concepts such as Taints and Tolerations
along with node affinity to manage Pod placement.
.....i. Platform Security: How to implement Security via Network policies? (Optional, If time permits)
.....j. Upgrading the platform: Upgrading the cluster using kubeadm (Optional, If time permits)
