Creating a re-usable Vagrant Box from an existing VM with Ubuntu and k3s (with the Kubernetes Dashboard) and adding mysql, using Vagrant and Oracle VirtualBox

Marc Lameriks

In a previous article, I shared with you the steps I took, to get k3s installed (with the Kubernetes Dashboard) on top of an Ubuntu guest Operating System within an Oracle VirtualBox appliance, with the help of Vagrant.

In November of last year, my colleague Lucas Jellema, wrote an article with the title “Ultra fast, ultra small Kubernetes on Linux – K3S beating minikube”. [https://technology.amis.nl/2019/11/12/ultra-fast-ultra-small-kubernetes-on-linux-k3s-beating-minikube/] For training and demo purposes, on my Windows laptop, I already had an environment with a guest Operating System, Docker and Minikube available […]

Using Elastic Stack, Filebeat and Logstash (for log aggregation)

Marc Lameriks

In a previous article I described how I used ElasticSearch, Filebeat and Kibana, for log aggregation (getting log information available at a centralized location). [https://technology.amis.nl/2019/09/15/using-elastic-stack-filebeat-for-log-aggregation/] In this article I will talk about the installation and use of Filebeat in combination with Logstash (from the Elastic Stack).

Running Apache Kafka on Minikube

Lucas Jellema

I frequently want to demonstrate the working of Apache Kafka and/or provide colleagues and other audiences with an environment for a workshop that involves Apache Kafka. I have been struggling to find  a good way to get Kafka to function properly on Minikube – the standalone, single node Kubernetes cluster […]

Minikube on KVM on Linux Mint 19.1

Maarten Smeets

In a previous blog post I wrote about running Minikube on Windows. I ended with the suggestion that getting Minikube working might be much easier on Linux. Thus I installed Linux Mint (as dual-boot) on my laptop and gave it a shot. The steps I took to get it working […]
