How I Installed Kubernetes From Scratch on a Bytemark VM

I run Luzme, an ebook search system, which runs 24x7 on about 30 virtual machines in 7 countries on 6 continents. This article explains how I setup Kubernetes from scratch on a set of VMs from Bytemark, to improve the way I use the infrastructure behind Luzme, using the new container-based technologies, such as Docker and Kubernetes, to provide a better, more maintainable, more scalable system Luzme uses a diverse stack of technologies, including Percona (a MySQL-compatible database), Firebase (real-time NoSQL), Redis, Celery, Django, Solr, AngularJS, Python.
