Where the compass is spinning around software
Minio, simple storage for your cluster

Development Kubernetes Docker Cloud

(updated 2017-03-16)

I’ve been using different volume types for storage in my kubernetes-on-arm cluster. I wrote two posts about it: GlusterFS On Kubernetes ARM and Storage for your cluster a year ago. All solutions adds complexity to the cluster, the one that’s been easiest to handle is nfs. But nfs isn’t transparent enough. I always seems to end up in strange corner cases where it’s not working as expected. The emptyDir volume type let’s you mount an empty directory from the host in to your Pod. But when the Pod goes away, so does your volume, leaving you with nothing.

Kubernetes on Scaleway - Part 3

Development Kubernetes Docker Cloud

This is the final part in a series about setting up Kubernetes on Scaleway. This final part is about setting up storage for your cluster. Most of the steps here is already described in an earlier post: GlusterFS On Kubernetes ARM that I wrote a couple of month back. You can also find the earlier posts in this series here: Part 1 and Part 1 (revisited) and Part 2.

Kubernetes on Scaleway - Part 1 (Revisited) & 2

Development Kubernetes Docker Cloud

Things doesn’t always turn out as planned. This is specially true when it comes to this series, on how to setup Kubernetes on Scaleway. The plan was that part 2 would be about setting up an ingress-controller and securing the api-server and dashboard. But in the meantime, while I was struggling with getting weave working on ARM and re-writing my own little project sloop, Kubernetes v1.4.0 was released with the kubeadm tool.
