On the Delicious Brains blog Gilbert Pellegrom has written up a post showing you how to get WordPress up and running on a Kubernetes cluster, making use of the helm tool to help with the installation process.
As a developer I try to keep my eye on the progression of technologies that I might not use every day, but are important to understand as they might indirectly affect my work. For example the recent rise of containerization, popularized by Docker, used for hosting web apps at scale. I’m not technically a devops person but as I build web apps on a daily basis it’s good for me to keep my eye on how these technologies are progressing.
[...] In this article, we’re going to start simple and take a look at the Kubernetes platform and how you can set up a WordPress site on a single node cluster on your local machine.
The tutorial then walks you through installing the local Kubernetes using Minikube and, once that's all set up and configured, using Helm to install WordPress in the cluster. He then shows how to scale the installation of WordPress and set up the system for high availability.
