Kubernetes Cluster API Provider IBM Cloud

Powered by IBM Cloud

This repository hosts a concrete implementation of an IBM Cloud provider for the cluster-api project.

What is the Cluster API Provider IBM Cloud

The Cluster API brings declarative, Kubernetes-style APIs to cluster creation, configuration and management. The API itself is shared across multiple cloud providers allowing for true IBM Cloud hybrid deployments of Kubernetes.


Please see our book for in-depth documentation.
