Justin Garrison and Kris Nova reveal hard-earned lessons on architecting infrastructure from companies such as Google, Amazon, and Netflix. They draw inspiration from projects adopted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), and provide examples of patterns seen in existing tools such as Kubernetes.
With this book, you will:
Justin Garrison is an engineer at one of the world's largest media companies. He loves open source almost as much as he loves community. He is not a fan of buzzwords but searches for the patterns and benefits behind technology trends. He frequently shares his findings and tries to disseminate knowledge through practical lessons and unique examples. He is an active member in many communities and constantly questions the status quo. He is relentless in trying to learn new things and giving back to the communities who have taught him so much.
Kris Nova is a Senior Developer Advocate for Heptio with an emphasis in containers, infrastructure, and Kubernetes. She is an ambassador for the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.Prior to Heptio, Kris worked as a developer advocate for Microsoft, as well as an engineer on Kubernetes in Azure. She has a deep technical background in the Go programming language, and has authored many successful tools in Go. Kris is a Kubernetes maintainer, and the creator of kubicorn, a successful Kubernetes infrastructure management tool. She organizes a special interest group in Kubernetes, and is a leader in the community. She understands the grievances with running cloud native infrastructure via a distributed cloud native application. She lives in Seattle, WA, and spends her free time mountaineering.
Ideal for system administrators, infrastructure engineers, team leads, and architects, this book demonstrates various tools, techniques, and patterns you can use to implement infrastructure as code. In three parts, you’ll learn about the platforms and tooling involved in creating and configuring infrastructure elements, patterns for using these tools, and practices for making infrastructure as code work in your environment.Examine the pitfalls that organizations fall into when adopting the new generation of infrastructure technologiesUnderstand the capabilities and service models of dynamic infrastructure platformsLearn about tools that provide, provision, and configure core infrastructure resourcesExplore services and tools for managing a dynamic infrastructureLearn specific patterns and practices for provisioning servers, building server templates, and updating running servers
Expand your professional design skills and engineer safe, reliable foundations and anchors for metal building systems. Written by a practicing structural engineer, Foundation and Anchor Design Guide for Metal Building Systems thoroughly covers the entire process--from initial soil investigation through final design and construction. The design of different types of foundations is explained and illustrated with step-by-step examples. The nuts-and-bolts discussion covers the best design and construction practices. This detailed reference book explains how the design of metal building foundations differs from the design of conventional foundations and how to comply with applicable building codes while avoiding common pitfalls.
COVERAGE INCLUDES:Metal building and foundation design fundamentals Soil types, properties, and investigation Unique aspects of foundation design for metal building systems Design of isolated column footings Foundation walls and wall footings Tie rods, hairpins, and slab ties Moment-resisting foundations Slab with haunch, trench footings, and mats Deep foundations Anchors in metal building systems Concrete embedments in metal building systems
Docker is quickly changing the way that organizations are deploying software at scale. But understanding how Linux containers fit into your workflow—and getting the integration details right—are not trivial tasks. With this practical guide, you’ll learn how to use Docker to package your applications with all of their dependencies, and then test, ship, scale, and support your containers in production.
Two Lead Site Reliability Engineers at New Relic share much of what they have learned from using Docker in production since shortly after its initial release. Their goal is to help you reap the benefits of this technology while avoiding the many setbacks they experienced.Learn how Docker simplifies dependency management and deployment workflow for your applicationsStart working with Docker images, containers, and command line toolsUse practical techniques to deploy and test Docker-based Linux containers in productionDebug containers by understanding their composition and internal processesDeploy production containers at scale inside your data center or cloud environmentExplore advanced Docker topics, including deployment tools, networking, orchestration, security, and configuration
