Kubernetes Networking: A lab on basic networking concepts

If you already have a basic understanding of Kubernetes and Docker, then continue with this next lab to learn about basic Kubernetes networking policies. This lab is geared toward basic Kubernetes concepts that you should have in your arsenal.

Why learn about Kubernetes networking in particular? For one, it differs from how Docker approaches networking. For another, you can control how your pods communicate with one another. When you complete this lab, you’ll learn:

  • How pods communicate with each other.
  • How ClusterIP can address pods’ changing IP addresses.
  • How to expose an external IP address to access your application.
  • How Ingress can providing load balancing.
