Which packages do I need to install on Ubuntu to try running the cass-operator?
GOT QUESTIONS from the Workshop? You're in the right place! Post a question here and we'll get you answers.
Here is a step-by-step procedure to get an Ubuntu 18.04 machine setup so you can start learning Kubernetes and try out the DataStax Cassandra k8s operator.
Docker is an open-source platform that allows developers to easily package/deploy/run software applications in self-contained packages called containers which can run anywhere. Docker containers provide another level of abstraction in that the containers share the operating system. In contrast, a virtual machine (VM) has both the OS and applications on shared hardware.
STEP D1 - Remove old versions of Docker if they've previously been installed:
$ sudo apt-get remove docker docker-engine docker.io containerd runc
STEP D2 - Install packages that allow APT to use HTTPS:
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install -y \ apt-transport-https \ ca-certificates \ curl \ gnupg-agent \ software-properties-common
STEP D3 - Add Docker's GPG key:
$ curl -fsSL https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/gpg | sudo apt-key add -
STEP D4 - Add the Docker repository:
$ sudo add-apt-repository \ "deb [arch=amd64] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu \ $(lsb_release -cs) \ stable"
STEP D5 - Install the Docker engine:
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install -y docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io
STEP D6 - Add your login to the Docker group:
$ sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
STEP D7 - Logout of your SSH session and log back in for the changes to take effect.
STEP D8 - Verify the engine is installed correctly:
$ docker run hello-world
For detailed installation info, see Install Docker Engine on Ubuntu.
Docker Compose is a tool for configuring an app's services with a YAML file to define and run multi-container Docker applications.
STEP C1 - Download a copy of Docker Compose:
$ sudo curl -L "https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.26.0/docker-compose-$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)" -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
STEP C2 - Make the app executable:
$ sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
STEP C3 - Test the installation:
$ docker-compose --version docker-compose version 1.26.0, build d4451659
For detailed installation info, see Install Docker Compose.
The Kubernetes command-line tool allows you to deploy and manage Kubernetes clusters.
STEP T1 - Download kubectl:
$ sudo curl -L "https://storage.googleapis.com/kubernetes-release/release/`curl -s https://storage.googleapis.com/kubernetes-release/release/stable.txt`/bin/linux/amd64/kubectl" -o /usr/local/bin/kubectl
STEP T2 - Make the app executable:
$ sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/kubectl
STEP T3 - Test the installation:
$ kubectl version --short --client Client Version: v1.18.3
For detailed installation info, see Install and Set Up kubectl.
Kubernetes-in-Docker (KinD) is a tool for running local Kubernetes clusters using Docker container "nodes".
STEP K1 - Download KinD:
$ sudo curl -L "https://kind.sigs.k8s.io/dl/v0.8.1/kind-$(uname)-amd64" -o /usr/local/bin/kind
STEP K2 - Make the app executable:
$ sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/kind
STEP T3 - Test the installation:
$ kind get clusters No kind clusters found.
If you got to this point, CONGRATULATIONS! Your Ubuntu machine is now ready to try out the DataStax Cassandra k8s operator.
