Book DescriptionIt is very important to understand the flexibility of an infrastructure when designing an efficient environment. In this book, you will cover everything from Linux components and functionalities through to hardware and software support, which will help you to implement and tune effective Linux-based solutions.

This book gets started with an overview of Linux design methodology. Next, you will focus on the core concepts of designing a solution. As you progress, you will gain insights into the kinds of decisions you need to make when deploying a high-performance solution using Gluster File System (GlusterFS). In the next set of chapters, the book will guide you through the technique of using Kubernetes as an orchestrator for deploying and managing containerized applications. In addition to this, you will learn how to apply and configure Kubernetes for your NGINX application. You'll then learn how to implement an ELK stack, which is composed of Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana. In the concluding chapters, you will focus on installing and configuring a Saltstack solution to manage different Linux distributions, and explore a variety of design best practices. By the end of this book, you will be well-versed with designing a high-performing computing environment for complex applications to run on.

By the end of the book, you will have delved inside the most detailed technical conditions of designing a solution, and you will have also dissected every aspect in detail in order to implement and tune open source Linux-based solutions

What you will learn

Study the basics of infrastructure design and the steps involved
Expand your current design portfolio with Linux-based solutions
Discover open source software-based solutions to optimize your architecture
Understand the role of high availability and fault tolerance in a resilient design
Identify the role of containers and how they improve your continuous integration and continuous deployment pipelines
Gain insights into optimizing and making resilient and highly available designs by applying industry best practices

Who this book is forThis intermediate-level book is for Linux system administrators, Linux support engineers, DevOps engineers, Linux consultants or any open source technology professional looking to learn or expand their knowledge in architecting, designing and implementing solutions based on Linux and open source software. Prior experience in Linux is required.
