In the previous post in the
kubernetes series, we deployed a small
kubernetes cluster locally on KVM. In future posts we will be deploying more things into the cluster. This will enable us to test different projects, ingresses, service meshes, and more from the open source community, build specifically for
kubernetes. To help with this future quest, we will be leveraging a kubernetes package
I wanted to explore kubernetes even more for myself and for this blog. I've worked on pieces of this at work but not the totality of the work which I would like to understand for myself. I wanted, also to explore new tools and ways to leverage the power of kubernetes.
In the last post, we have configured a basic minikube cluster. In this post we will deploy a few items we will need in a cluster and maybe in the future, experiment with it a bit.
If you have ever worked with kubernetes, you'd know that minikube out of the box does not give you what you need for a quick setup. I'm sure you can go
minikube start, everything's up... Great...
. It works, let's move on...
kubectl get pods -n kube-system
But what if it's not let's move on to something else. We need to look at this as a local test environment in capabilities.
