About the Ebook

Companies that begin working with containerized applications often aren’t prepared for the challenge of container networking. When you want to connect your containerized Python app to a container that has a database, you enter a domain that still requires a good deal of trial and error. This practical ebook excerpt delivers basic guidance on container networking with best practices that, until now, have been scattered around the web.

Michael Hausenblas, a member of Red 6Hat’s OpenShift team, provides developers, site reliability engineers, and software architects with a detailed look at the many challenges of container networking, container orchestration, and service discovery, and shares several available solutions. Along the way, you’ll learn the capabilities of many open source tools, including Kubernetes.
