Alpine + Kubernetes + DNS

Weary travelers breaking into the Kubernetes world – this post is for you. During my journey into K8s, I’ve tried to use a lot of Alpine based images. In many cases, they are considerably more lightweight than the other available images, which makes them especially attractive. But, there are some issues and some workarounds. From my reading, it seemed that all the DNS strangeness should have been fixed around v3.5 of Alpine.
