The Complete Guide on Hyperledger Fabric v2.x on Kubernetes

Deploy Hyperledger Fabric on Kubernetes

In this course, you will learn to design and deploy Hyperledger Fabric applications on Kubernetes. This course is specifically designed for those seeking to learn hyperledger fabric deployment on Kubernetes. By the end of the course, you will be able to design, develop and deploy your hyperledger fabric network on any cloud, since we have used the cloud-agnostic approach. This course is completely hands-on and we will be focusing more on the practical approach rather than the theoretical.

What you’ll learn

  • Design Hyperledger Fabric Network.
  • Working with Kubernetes.
  • Hyperledger Fabric on Kubernetes.

Various Ways for Hyperledger Fabric Deployment

As Hyperledger Fabric components are deployed as containers, everything works fine when running in the localhost. When they are running in different hosts, we need to find a way to make these containers talk to one another.

  1. Static IP By specifying the host IP where a container is running, containers can communicate with each other. Those host IPs are specified using extra_hosts in docker-compose files, and after a container is running, these entries are seen in, etc/hosts. The downside is that things are statically configured, and there are challenges when one needs to add or change the configuration.
  2. Docker Swarm Docker Swarm is a container orchestration tool natively in the Docker environment. In a nutshell, It provides an overlay network for containers across multiple hosts. Those containers on this overlay network can communicate to one another as if they were on a large host. Obviously, the good side is that the original configuration can be used with minimal modification, and no static information such as IP is coded in the configuration.
  3. Kubernetes (k8s) K8s by far is the most popular container orchestration tool. The mechanism is similar to Docker Swarm. The implementation of this approach is much more challenging than the previous two mechanisms but this approach is much more scalable and recommended by the Hyperledger Fabric team.
