Lab Name

Objectives

Start Lab

Use ECI And Serverless Kubernetes

This experiment mainly uses Alibaba Cloud Elastic Container Instance (ECI) to describe its basic usage. ECI is an agile and secure serverless container instance service. It allows you to run containers without managing servers.

Use Function Compute As a Api Gateway Back-end Service

This experiment uses Alibaba Cloud Api Gateway services and Function Compute services. In the experiment, ApiGateway is used as the interface of external client access, and the back end uses function calculation to access the user's business application, and processes the data returned by the business application, which data will be returned to the client in the end.

Achieve Visual Monitoring Schemes Based On Container Service For K8S

For monitoring containers in Kubernetes clusters, there are a lot of monitoring software and tools, so users can choose many monitoring schemes, and the overall architecture of each scheme is similar. Based on Alibaba Cloud Container Service for Kubernetes, two typical open source monitoring schemes can be easily achieved. The first is to use Heapster, InfluxDB, and Grafana in combination, and the second is to use the Prometheus.

Use Ingress To Expose Services In Kubernetes

This experiment involves Alibaba Cloud Container Service for Kubernetes. It demonstrates how to use a Kubernetes Ingress. You can expose services within a Kubernetes cluster to clients outside the cluster by using the Service or Ingress method. Service is an abstraction which defines a logical set of pods with identical functions that provides an unchanged endpoint.
