Kubernetes installation with kubeadm

In my previous post, I presented an easy way how to deploy Kubernetes cluster with Rancher. Kubernetes is hard to install without using third party tools, but luckily they released an official tool for simple deployment kubeadm. Please note that kubeadm is still in Alpha and not ready for production use, but it is good enough to play with on development environments. Kubernetes installation with kubeadm really simplifies deployment procedure and it is easy to use. Also, I find it very stable during my testing. kubeadm is a part of Kubernetes distribution starting with 1.4.0 release, but it does not track same release process at the moment. I’m expecting it to be ready for Kubernetes 1.6.

Docker orchestration with Kubernetes and Rancher

When it comes to Docker containers and orchestration there are a lot of available options. Almost every few months some new Docker orchestration tool is available. At least that was the case at the beginning. Most of those tools are opensource projects, but of course, there are some enterprise orchestration tools. However, Google’s Kubernetes is most used and really popular tool. Like with all Google products it is also complicated to install and manage. They recently released kubeadm Kubernetes deployment tool, but this is still in Alpha and not ready for production environments. In this post, I will show you how to deploy Kubernetes on top of Rancher which is my favorite. With Rancher, you could decide which Docker orchestration tool to use, like Cattle (Rancher), Kubernetes, Mesos or Docker Swarm.
