Hyperledger is one of the most exciting and important project taking place in the Linux development community. Today I couldn’t let go and do not re-share a Blog post from the Red Hat Developers Blog, that I also included in my list of Blogs worth to follow, which I wish to re-share from now and then.
Today’s post is about how to work with Hyperledger on Kubernetes. Kubernetes is a platform spun off of Google that do an important task for software developers – the orchestration and management of containers. Containers are an important instance in modern software development, functioning as a server virtualization method where it is useful for securely allocating finite hardware resources amongst a large number of mutually-distrusting users:
Kubernetes is a leading platform for automating deployment, scaling, and operations of containerised applications.
- Automatic binpacking
- Horizontal scaling
- Automated rollouts and rollbacks
- Storage orchestration
- Service discovery and load balancing
- Secret and configuration management
- Batch execution
Kubernetes is an open-source platform for automating deployment, scaling, and operations of application containers across clusters of hosts, providing container-centric infrastructure.
OpenShift Container Platform – OCP is based on top of Linux containers and the Kubernetes container cluster manager. OCP adds developer and operational management centric tools to enable rapid application development, easy deployment and scaling, and long-term lifecycle maintenance for small and large teams and applications.
I am using macOS Sierra for development, with following configuration:
I further recommend all readers interested and with a development background to check the full post and the code snippets available, where the steps to deploy the fabric-starter-kit are disclosed
