What is Kubernetes
Kubernetes clusters host containerised applications
in a reliable and scalable way. Having DevOps in mind, Kubernetes makes
maintenance tasks such as upgrades dead simple.
What is MicroK8s
MicroK8s is a CNCF certified upstream Kubernetes deployment that runs entirely on your workstation or edge device.
Being a snap it runs all Kubernetes services natively (i.e. no virtual machines) while packing the entire set of libraries and binaries needed. Installation is limited by how fast you can download a couple
of hundred megabytes and the removal of MicroK8s leaves nothing behind.
In this tutorial you’ll learn how to…
- Install Homebrew on macOS
- Install Multipass and MicroK8s from Brew
- Run MicroK8s add-ons
You will only need …
- A machine with macOS with at least 8GB of RAM
