about this example

Kubernetes' orchestration simplifies container management at scale. This flow diagram illustrates:

  • API Interaction: Begins with the kubectl create command to the API server, initiating the container lifecycle.
  • etcd Storage: The API server stores the new pod state in the etcd datastore, ensuring consistent state management.
  • Scheduling and Assignment: The control plane scheduler watches for unassigned pods, assigns them to nodes, and updates their status.
  • Container Runtime: Concludes with the node's kubelet starting the container as per the scheduler's decision.
When to use
  • Container Orchestration Design: For software engineers designing or understanding container orchestration workflows within a Kubernetes environment.
  • DevOps Training: As a training tool to help DevOps teams grasp the steps involved in deploying containers using Kubernetes.
  • Automation and Scaling: When automating the deployment process and scaling applications in cloud or on-premises environments.
How to use
  1. Start editing: Duplicate the example file and double-click on the diagram.
  2. Customize diagram: Add/modify nodes, groups, and relationships using a diagram-as-code syntax to align with your Kubernetes setup.
  3. Customize layout: Rearrange elements on the diagram directly on the canvas to fit your architectural needs.
  4. Collect feedback: Encourage collaboration by sharing the diagram with your team and using their comments for iterative refinement.
