  • Run your favorite Helm Chart using MicroK8s in 5 minutes
    dev.to | 2021-06-23
    MicroK8s is a lightweight, pure-upstream Kubernetes aiming to reduce entry barriers for K8s and cloud-native application development. It comes in a single package that installs a single-node (standalone) K8s cluster in under 60 seconds. While MicroK8s has all the Kubernetes core components, it is also opinionated, which means that many of the add-ons you would typically look for in Kubernetes, such as DNS, Helm, registry, storage, etc. are all a single command away.

    On the other hand, if velocity is a high priority, some tools help streamline creating a local cluster environment with most of the necessary configurations in place. Some of these tools include Kubeadm, K3s, Minikube, MicroK8s, and Docker Desktop.

    Creating a Kubernetes cluster actually today is pretty simple, using tools like MicroK8s but there are still some manual actions to take.

  • PIs for my Aunts birthday! She wants to make a Kubernetes cluster! Thought you guys might enjoy the packaging
    I’ve been dabbling with microk8s and my pies, but have yet to find a real use case other than a better way to host a Minecraft bedrock server than just one pi. Microk8s is developed by Canonical and is a very light kubernetes alternative (technically I think it’s just a skeleton version). Just for anyone interested.
  • KubeMQ Bridges for Edge Computing
    dev.to | 2021-04-01
    Second, a solution such as KubeMQ is lightweight enough to be deployed to nearly any limited compute edge environment. Traditionally, message queues are large, resource-intensive applications. Consider, for example, the latest version of IBM MQ, which at the time of writing has significant hardware requirements such as > 1.5 GB disk space and 3 GB of RAM. In contrast, KubeMQ can be spun up basically anywhere you can create a Kubernetes cluster. With solutions such as MicroK8s and K3s, you can even run KubeMQ on a Raspberry Pi.

  • Do you have a personal Kubernetes cluster?
    I recently upgraded a few components in the system, but it's relatively solid. I run microk8s and microstack on it, depending on my needs. I have a 'reset' script that burns it all down to 421 packages, absolute bare minimum needed, then I build up from there.
  • Do Kubernetes/Rancher provide benefits to Docker?
    If you're already familiar with Kubernetes because you use it at work, then something like Microk8s https://microk8s.io/ is great because it's familiar.
