Alex Cattle

on 27 January 2020

MicroK8s is the smallest, fastest multi-node Kubernetes. Single-package fully conformant lightweight Kubernetes that works on 42 flavours of Linux as well as Mac and Windows using Multipass. Perfect for: Developer workstations, IoT, Edge, CI/CD.

Anyone who’s tried to work with Kubernetes knows the pain of having to deal with getting setup and running with the deployment. There are minimalist solutions in the market that reduce time-to-deployment and complexity but the light weight solutions come at the expense of critical extensibility and missing add-ons.

If you don’t want to spend time jumping through hoops to get Kubernetes up and running, MicroK8s gets you started in under 60 seconds.

“Canonical might have assembled the easiest way to provision a single node Kubernetes cluster”

Kelsey Hightower, Google.

Join our webinar to learn why developers choose to work with MicroK8s as a reliable, fast, small and upstream version of Kubernetes and how you can get started. The webinar will also feature the add-ons available including Kubeflow for AI/ML work, Grafana and Prometheus for monitoring, service mesh tools and more.
