  • k3sup

    bootstrap K3s over SSH in < 60s 🚀

  • I use https://k3s.io and it's super simple. You will have a basic cluster running in less than 5 minutes. There's even an unofficial installer for it (https://github.com/alexellis/k3sup) which makes the bootstrapping even easier.

  • rke2

  • Give a try to rke2 https://docs.rke2.io/ We are using it on EC2 and it is really good. If you want something quick, I think kubeadm is the way to go

  • flintlock

    Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking MicroVMs. Create and manage the lifecycle of MicroVMs backed by containerd.

  • Have a look at Liquid Metal using microvms on baremetal and using flintlock. It's pretty frigging awesome. :)

  • talos

    Talos Linux is a modern Linux distribution built for Kubernetes.

  • You can experiment with Talos Linux https://www.talos.dev/

  • k3s

    Lightweight Kubernetes

  • I use https://k3s.io and it's super simple. You will have a basic cluster running in less than 5 minutes. There's even an unofficial installer for it (https://github.com/alexellis/k3sup) which makes the bootstrapping even easier.

  • kubespray

    Deploy a Production Ready Kubernetes Cluster

  • We went with Kubespray, pretty solid and since we already had Ansible in place it was pretty easy!

  • homelab

  • I ended up writing my own, twice actually. Just re-wrote my entire k8s setup for my new homelab. It's published here on gitlab.com. It's not very well documented since it's for personal use but I think it emphasizes how easy it is to setup kubeadm and why there is little reason to make it more complicated than it needs to be.

  • ansible-role-k3s

    Ansible role for deploying k3s cluster (by rlex)

  • At my personal testlab/cluster, i use k3s deployed with my ansible role

  • ansible-role-k3s

    Ansible role for installing k3s as either a standalone server or HA cluster.

  • There is another very good ansible role for k3s, actually better than mine

  • hetzner-k3s

    The easiest and quickest way to create and manage Kubernetes clusters in Hetzner Cloud using the lightweight distribution k3s by Rancher.

  • If you somehow use hetzner, this one is great too for k3s
