  1. Challenge

    Create a Deployment to Manage the Application

    Create a deployment that spins up 3 replica pods running the nginx:1.19.1 image. The pods will need to publish a containerPort of 80 to expose Nginx externally.

  2. Challenge

    Create a service to expose the application externally.

    Create a service that will expose the deployment's pods as an external service accessible by applications outside the cluster. The service should map to a targetPort of 80. Use a nodePort of 32768 to expose the service externally.
