Continental Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
Pod configuration is managed by Deployments, StatefulSets and Daemonsets, whereas services direct traffic to pods using selectors.
For every workload created, a complementing Service Discovery entry is created. This Service Discovery entry enables DNS resolution for the workload’s pods using the following naming convention:
You can create additional services so that a given namespace resolves with one or more external IP addresses, an external hostname, an alias to another DNS record, other workloads, or a set of pods that match a selector that you create.
Result: A new service is created.
