Kubernetes The Hard Way
This tutorial walks you through setting up Kubernetes the hard way for independent solutions This guide is not for people looking for a fully automated command to bring up a Kubernetes cluster. If that's you then check out Google Kubernetes Engine, or the Getting Started Guides.
Kubernetes The Hard Way is optimized for learning, which means taking the long route to ensure you understand each task required to bootstrap a Kubernetes cluster.
The results of this tutorial should not be viewed as production ready, and may receive limited support from the community, but don't let that stop you from learning!
The target audience for this tutorial is someone planning to support a production Kubernetes cluster and wants to understand how everything fits together.
Kubernetes The Hard Way guides you through bootstrapping a highly available Kubernetes cluster with end-to-end encryption between components and RBAC authentication.
This tutorial assumes that you have access to an physical infrastructure, with your own virtualization system (VMware, HyperV, Proxmox, Xen...). With this case, we will not aboard the specifics settings for each systems...
