Kubernetes 的失敗案例

有人把 Kubernetes (通常縮寫成「K8S」) 的失敗案例 (轉移失敗、爛掉、...) 整理到 GitHub 上:「Kubernetes Failure Stories」,裡面有文章也有演講影片,然後也有重複的公司在不同時間點說明。

先來講 K8S 好了,如果要粗略的解釋 K8S 是什麼東西,我會說就像是架一組 AWS 服務起來,但是是基於 container 而非 VM。

拿 AWS 的詞彙來說,他在上面疊了一層 Amazon VPC (會對應到 Kubernetes 的 overlay network 與 CNI),然後也提供 AMI (透過 Docker Image) 與 EC2 (因為是比喻,這邊就拿 AMI + EC2 來對比),還有基本的 ELB (各種 NodePort、HostPort 與 Ingress) 與 Service Discovery。

比較特別的是 Pod 的概念,在一般的雲上不太會看到。

不過大致上你可以想像這是一個小型的 AWS,而試著去猜測管理一個小型的 AWS 會需要了解多少底層知識,加上 K8S 一直在發展,很多功能可能都還不成熟 (所以用起來會覺得設計很奇怪),然後上面整理出的失敗案例就不意外了... XD

如果你是自己有機房,或是用便宜的 VPS (像是 LinodeDigitalOceanVultr),那麼我覺得在上面堆 K8S cluster 還算合理,畢竟你可以透過 K8S 幫你整合不少以前得自己架設的服務。

但如果你是已經在 Cloud 上面,然後還想在上面跑 K8S cluster,我是覺得還是要有個理由 (不管是技術上或是政治上的)。如果只是因為 K8S 潮到出水而用的話,可能過一個月後你家就淹水了 XD

另外講一些題外話,因為最近弄 Kubernetes 的關係 (可以參考我的筆記「Kubernetes」),才能理解為什麼 Linode 這些 VPS 會推出 load balancer 與 block storage,算是後知後覺...

從 IndieHackers.com 上掃出各種「成功的方法」

Indie Hackes 是個放各種「成功案例」的網站:

Indie Hackers is a place where the founders of profitable businesses and side projects can share their stories transparently, and where entrepreneurs can come to read and learn from those examples. It's also a community where individual "indie hackers" can come together to share their experiences, give and receive feedback, and rely on one another for support.

而文章的作者把上面的文章拿出來分析,得到了一些有趣的資訊:「Reverse Engineering A Successful Lifestyle Business: Here’s Everything I’ve Learned From Reading IndieHackers.com」。

Amazon Storywriter


Amazon Storywriter 是個自動排版工具,支援 Google Chrome extension,不過從 screenshot 好像看到特別的東西:「Free Amazon scriptwriting app lets scribes pitch directly to Amazon Studios」。

這字型有種... 不知道要說什麼的感覺啊 XDDD

反而會想要用看看,到底對寫作提昇多少幫助 XDDD
