We’re excited to announce the release of MicroK8s with Kubernetes 1.17! MicroK8s is a Kubernetes cluster delivered as a single snap package – it can be installed on any Linux distribution which supports snaps. MicroK8s is small and simple to install and is a great way to stand up a cluster quickly for development and testing. Try it on your laptop!
Try it out today:
sudo snap install microk8s --classic --channel=1.17/stable
