Deploying Stateful Applications in Kubernetes

by Philippe Collignon

Scaling stateful applications in Kubernetes is challenging. This course will teach you Kubernetes storage API objects needed to deploy stateful applications in Kubernetes: PersistentVolume, PersistentVolumeClaim, StorageClass, and StatefulSet.

What you'll learn

Scaling stateless applications is easy with Kubernetes, after all, that's what it was designed for. But when it comes to stateful apps with data, it becomes more challenging. In this course, Deploying Stateful Applications in Kubernetes, you’ll gain the ability to manage applications with state in Kubernetes.. First, you’ll explore you’ll explore how to persist the state with Persistent Volumes and abstract the storage with Persistent Volume Claims. Next, you’ll discover how to automate Persistent Volume creation with Dynamic Provisioning and Storage Classes. Finally, you’ll learn how to scale your stateful application with a Statefulset. . When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of Kubernetes storage API objects needed to deploy stateful applications in Kubernetes : PersistentVolume, PersistentVolumeClaim, StorageClass, StatefulSet...
