Many applications hosted in a Docker container need a volume to store data on or to read from. The data can’t be stored in the Docker container itself because the data will be lost after a restart or when the container crashes. Persistent Storage has an independent lifecycle of a Pod. This blogposts shows the most used possibilities to use persistent storage using Kubernetes on Azure.
Connect to a Node via SSH within a Kubernetes cluster on Azure Container Service
This blogpost was not possible without the help of Andreas Lindeboom, my Xebia colleague of XITA. Thanks!
In case of problems with a node of a Kubernetes cluster you probably want to read the logfiles on a Node of the Kubernetes Cluster, as described here. This Kubernetes cluster is created with Azure Container Service (ACS).
Handling settings and Environment Variables of your .NET Core 2 application hosted in a Docker container during development and on Kubernetes (Helm to the resque)
You have developed a microservice in .NET Core 2 and want to host it as a Docker Container in Kubernetes. Your Microservice contains settings, some appsettings or connectionstrings for example. These settings differ over environments. You can treat this configuration for Kubernetes on different ways. This blogposts shows you how to handle settings over environments prepared for Continuous Delivery.
