In this video I cover one part of the broader Kubernetes Networking topic, which is container communication inside pods.
Considering Pods mostly contain only 1 main container, I start by answering the question of why having a Pod as an abstraction over container is such an important concept in Kubernetes.
I show how container port mapping is a problem with hundreds of containers, specifically how to allocate ports without getting conflicts. How this compares to Pods and how Pods solve this port allocation problem.
In addition, I show you in which cases you would need to run multiple containers in one pod and how these containers communicate with each other inside this pod.

❌ Correction for 6:15 in the video: Vagrant is NOT a container runtime alternative. K8s lists some of the alternatives here ► https://kubernetes.io/docs/setup/production-environment/container-runtimes/.

▬▬▬▬▬▬ Complete Kubernetes Networking Course 🎬:
I’m making a complete course about Kubernetes Networking, covering rest of the topics, like
► how pods communicate with each other on the same node and across hundreds of servers?
► how does the outside world communicate with K8s cluster?
► how K8s cluster plugs into the underlying infrastructure network?
► Docker Container Networking

  1. Amazing..Thank you very much Nana. This is what I've been looking for, like why do we need these many objects in k8s like pods, containers etc. I've gone through many tutorials but couldn't find the right answer. This is perfect explanation. Thank you again.

  2. very stupid example with port forwarding, you are so bad… just use linux and you can access to container by his ip and port. Go to learn basics, you are so noobish teacher. Don't buy this courses guys, you can find any info in google and books, she is useless and steals your money!

  3. Hi Nana, what is the use of POD when you are using one container per pod. I think when you have multiple containers in pod you can save port and IP address but single container per pod is no use.

  4. Hello Nana, great explanation on container networking, you had mentioned that you will be releasing a more in-depth content on K8s networking. Any updates on that. Thanks

  5. Thank You, Nana ! I had watched the half of the video, decided to pause it and subscribe to your channel first. Very good explanation from basic of pod and containers.

  6. Hi Nana! Thanks so much for this great video! Have you already published more videos of the Kubernetes Networking Course?

  7. very nice video it helped me a lot in understanding the pod and container behavior in Kubernetes. appreciate your time&efforts

  8. In my view, some of the best Kubernetes content on the internet lives here. Thank You.

  9. ''services enabling clients to discover and talk to pods ''
    Have anyone had idea about this project?

  10. How many side cars we can deploy in a pod. Is there any min and max limit?
    And for every pod, should we maintain "pause container"?

  11. If Pod is a host, then what is Node? From my basic understanding, Node is the smallest unit on the Kubernetes which is physique or virtual machine (laptop or VM)? And you said Pod is the Laptop (which is more or less the same) as the understanding of Node.

    Sorry I still didn't understand between those two…

  12. Hi madam….. I am unable to bind a container with a port. I am having a postgres container in yaml file on port 5432. Kubectl create is successful and pod is running. But when I exec into the container and run netstat -ln….. It shows no port has been configured. Can you please guide me what can be the reason for this… 😕

  13. Such a powerhouse of technology and training with ease !. Wonderful service to the technical community ! Donno how to thank you and appreciate your work. Great …. Thanks a ton Nana.

  14. Nana…. These sessions are very much helpful and i am eagerly waiting for that complete networking course of kubernetes…. When/where can i find it.

  15. Excellent videos, I love the bit sized format, you've just explained more in < 14 minutes, than I've learnt in 3 days of reading documentation 😀
